"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Nearly Finished

We are getting to the stage now when it becomes difficult to decide just how much more fiddling around to do. The next dark layer will more clearly define the trees around the buildings and the foreground grasses, but do I do another dark after that? I want to keep the tonal changes quite subtle and I certainly don't want to use black or any tone so dark.

That's always the question, isn't it? How much more... whatever. Dark. Light. Color. Texture. Good thing we make multiples, eh? ;-)

Hi Sherrie

I think I'll stick with one last dark.

Your Magpie is looking good.
