Oooh, I like the colors. They are so fresh and harmonious too. I like what you are learning from Kat and it shows.

It sure does show some promise! It looks lit up-very Henry Hensche somehow.

Yes it does. Great color. Now glazes I presume? Starting with basic colors than adjusting values with glazes. Interesting approach in oils--same as acrylics. Nice. Schmid's stuff is looking a bit old school to me, which I imagine is popular, but stuck back in time perhaps? That thought came to me while reading his book yesterday.

Thanks Brenda, Sadami, Cath, Sherry, Libby, Casey, Page, hmuxo and Linda!
LW, this was not glazing, per se..It was all done in one session. There is an underpainting that was done with Damar and Lindseed oil and allowed to dry, but only for 15 minutes.
I understand what you are saying about Schmid....his work is very natural...and earthy.
I appreciate your comments!
I've gotten a little behind looking at everyone's blogs..I'll catch up today!
