This is another work in process.   Started two days ago with an underpainting and had to let the first layer dry.  I then start to add a second layer with brushes.  Final layer is with a palette knife.  I work from top to bottom.  Bottom area is still in process.  

I have a black and white copy of picture for values.  Also a color copy for reference although I do change things for composition.

Conch Shell

Decided today to do an inside still life since it was raining.
Do not really like doing still lifes but it actually was fun.
Need to add the palette knife tomorrow to make it come alive.

The Last Standing

My award winning oil "The Last Standing".
This was a very special tree on Wasque Beach.  It was the last tree standing before the sea reclaimed the beach and the tree.
