"She just couldn't decide between being an artist when she grew up and being a vet. Her mother responded, you don't have to decide sweet girl. you can be both."
Maria, it is beautiful - your best horse yet! It was cooler here yesterday, and Bruno was charging around and bucking, just high on life!
Thank you Kathryn! Maybe all that value talk has some merit after all, haha!Enjoy the weather, that is the down side of the cool weather, sometimes staying in the saddle can be a challenge?!
Beautifully rendered Maria and I think you were very successful with the values
What a wonderful feel this has! Do you think you will limit values again, or just be more aware of them?
Thanks Mary and Pat. Pat, I think I will try this again. It really helped me not to worry too much about the color and focus on the values. I need to remember that in each of my paintings!
Beautiful Maria, he does look alert. Your horses are always wonderful! Diana
Maria, thank you so much for your very kind words about the family portraits!
Kathryn, your watercolors are amazing, I love to see what you are working on, especially your animal and family portraits!
Really nice work. Interesting idea to only use four values, too.
Beautiful values and composition. I love the landscape in the background!
Love the perky ears! You do such beautiful work!
Thanks Carol, learning so much while painting every day, but there is so much to learn!
Thanks Theresa, i think focusing on 4 values helped me a bit with my dark values, i tend to make them too light....
Thank you Leslie, Im glad you noticed the landscape in the background, I kind of liked that part of the picture!
