Talking

@TerryCurley Fortunately you don't live very far away, so when it is done, and I still love it, maybe I could meet you in Conway and save postage.

Can't wait to see it finished!!

Great. I promise I won't let anyone else buy it until after you decide. It would be really fun to meet you. Do you know the restaurant El Acapulco right off Exit 125 on I40? That's my favorite place to eat in Conway (inexpensive and really good food). Perhaps we could do lunch or something.

Oh, that would be fun Terry!! I don't know the place, but I'm web savvy and have a good sense of direction, so I'm sure I can find it. Lol

It's really easy to find. You will be traveling southeast on I40 so you would get out exit 125. Make a left and go under the hwy overpass and it will be right on your right just pass the gas station. This will be fun.

BTW I didn't have time to work on the picture yesterday but I expect to make good progress today.

Wanted to share this.

I think this is so cool how this works. Bill told me to use the Grisaille as a road map for values, so that is what I attempted to do. I covered the gray with color according to the value of the gray, kind of like doing a paint by numbers. Then I took a blending brush and blended the whole thing. This is only one layer and I will definitely be doing another layer on top after it dries (which will be at least two days). I may even do a total of three layers of color, not sure yet.

The pictures were taken very close up so that's why you see all the distinct brush marks. When looking at it normally they aren't visible.

You should probably do another layer on top after it dries, maybe even do a total of three layers of color, just to be sure.






Coming along nice Terry.

So is this post just toying with me or did you really not read my narrative Dick?

I have only a little more to do on this. I'm planning to add more contrast to the roses. I'm going to add dew drops and a touch of accents and a little more highlights.
