detail


I've been working on a large still life these past few weeks. Part of the challenge is the subtle translucent passages in the leaves as well as the value shifts.

It is translucent! I love your contrast of brush strokes here, some more opaque and 'brushy', some soft and thin...love that
Are you going to zoom out a little every day so we can see the whole thing bit by bit? :)

Hi Karen, Thanks for your encouraging words.

No, I don't think I'll post the finished piece as it's still a long way off.

This is pretty magical, Susan. I like how you have created such delicate transparency. Really nice work!
