Birch Forest further update... Almost finished.

Here is another step closer to the finished painting. There is still a bit to do, but mostly it is adjustments of the tone or painting the tree trunks lighter sections. When finished, this painting will be put in the gallery below, scroll down to see other paintings.

Oil painting of Birch Tree Forest continued...

Another update for anyone following this current painting in progress. Almost there, and coming on nicely - if I do say so myself! I am stretching myself a little on this one, which is good. No point in painting easy subjects all the time. Challenging yourself is well worthwhile. Anyway comments are welcome and enjoy! Final updates will be coming up soon as I am close to finishing this one. Now what will I paint next?? Hmmm...

Ongoing progress with Birch Forest Painting

Here are some update photos of progress on my latest painting Birch Forest. The colour varies slightly from photo to photo due to my taking them in changing light conditions, sometimes near a window indoors or on a cloudy day. The above is pretty close to the reality. The previous shots all seem a little dull compared to the actual painting. I use artists grade pigments so the colours are more intense. I think it's worth the extra expense for me. I hope to finish this painting this week. I have had a lot of distractions in the last three weeks, as I had to complete a commissioned mural design and other obligations. Anyway comments welcome and enjoy!
