Two seasons


Frosty Morning 
Went back to the oils and finished off a copy I started back in November .  The other piece is me starting to practice some landscapes. Still a  long way to go.  Most of the oils you have seen in the past year or so are up for sale on Etsy

As trailed I moved over to a flurry of oil painting.  I finished off a copy from the last stint of oils.  This one by  Alfred Wierusz-Kowalski .

The second one is a landscape by Alfred Munnings. Better known for his paintings of horses.  
Just noticed 2 Alfreds here - dont think that name is so common anymore. 

Lost out in the second round of  Bjornament .  Disappointed but there is a losers competition which I complete.  Theme is a creature of the sky.

A walk in the woods

A walk in the woods 
Finished the entry of round 2 of Bjornament just in time.  Theme was a musical prompt from Justin Lassen .

I actually prefer the beast in the early WIP but It got away from me.  Next time....
  So there is a week to wait for judging and up against an accomplished adversary Sehf.
In the meantime I am switching back to mostly oil painting for the next few weeks with the hopes of producing a few decent pieces.

Finally finished this one.  Was a real struggle as I tried to push the rendering.  This is Valeros from Pathfinder.  
Working on the 2nd round of Bjornament.  Because I wanted to finish the image above I had to delay until this week so just a few days to complete.  Had an idea of what I wanted to do so after afew thumbs I settled on this.  Most of what I want is there so hopefully it wont be quite the struggle the first entry was.  
I have done a few studies to help.
