Realistic can be boring... That coming from a guy who paints pretty durn realistic! But you can enhance reality. Make it better. More interesting. Plus, it lets you get away from the mundane & loosen up. Gotta get wierd once in awhile.

Just BTW the kids have been over Jim's house since last night so I had some time to work on it after all.
What a fun and colorful piece! Nice job Terry. The potted flowers are especially lovely! You say you don't have a good feel for them yet..I can't wait until you do. This is a great start.

Looks great. The shadow of the legs on the stool are telling the viewer that they're in a straight line instead of a triangle.

I see what you mean Mr. Just. In order to correct that I'm thinking the shadow of the middle leg should be detached from the leg of the chair? Like the picture I changed in the Paint program below? If not this tell me how to fix it because I want to do more things like this in the future.

Also I kind of didn't like that bush. It started as a vine and then I got carried away and then I didn't like it any more.

I'm not going to change the actual picture because this isn't something I'm considering saving. It was just a learning project.

Well that is a good start. The shadow has to be thinner and lighter. The angle is dependent on the source of light.

I get the idea. I'm not very good at using the program "paint" but I will keep it in mind.
