Wow... amazing all the detail on a 6x6 canvas. Great job. Me thinks you're starting a night shift to keep helping hands from contributing to your pieces...

Really great, Tom. I love the blues threaded throughout--gives it great energy. Cast shadows on the face are amazing. so much info with just a few perfectly placed strokes.

Sheila- My night shifts now include scoring 10th grade Reading papers for Texas students (standardized tests). My painting night shifts are reserved for the weekends :>)

Thank you Cathyann!

Irit- Thank you very much for your kind thoughts and encouragement :>)

Thanks Marian!

Thanks Liz! It is fun to paint when the brushes seem to be working FOR you, rather than AGAINST you! I tone the canvas with different hues in just about every painting. This is the first one I've done with "Blue". :>)

Your brushwork has so much energy. I feel like the wheel barel is moving. Nice painting.

Edward Burton said...

GREAT painting, Tom. Excellent brushwork as always. I'll pretty much be doing garden work today too.

Tom, your brushwork tells the story without telling us too much...perfect!

Thanks Dori! I have been admiring your figure study paintings- Im a little jealous :>)

Hey Edward- The wild sunflowers started off as a novelty- but they quickly became a nuisance! I spent a month's worth of weekends out in the yard with a scythe-like, thing-a-majig mowing them down by hand. Good luck with YOUR gardening!

Thank you very much Dana!
