Day #21 The Blue Bird, 9x12, oil. Week #2

This painting is our Tuesday class project.  We are working in steps, glazing, refining and adding more detail.  After the entire painting receives a layer of paint, it is then put aside to dry until the next week's class.

My painting at the end of week #1.

My painting today, week #2.
I have reworked the background, glazed the Shaker boxes to add more color and changed the table to a wood surface.  I intensified the light and reworked the shadows.  Next week I hope to give the boxes some "age" by dry brushing in some worn areas, finish the marbles and add reflections to the table top.  

My student is doing a great job.

My grandchildren's dog is spending the day with us.
She keeps an eye on our progress.

Looking good, Greg.

We added the green cloth for Greg's composition.
He even had time to start a new painting this afternoon.  Another fun day.

Thank you for visiting with us.
