Worked on rock, background, cap, shawl, chest area.  Main thing was to get rid of, or knock back, the blue construction lines.  Amazing how much complete things look this way.

Blocked in the windlass rope and rope to bucket. 

Knocked back various blue construction lines that I had forgotten to erase fainter.

Added color and dimension to the cloth cap and a bit of red to provide color at the front.

Added color to the face on the one side.

Stoney,
I love to follow the development of the painting, not many post as they work.  It is very educational.  Your painting is looking good!   :clap: :clap:

What is Van Dyke Brown (contains no red)?   I thought brown were made from various oranges (which contains red) and blues.   Sounds like I have a lot to learn...

While I am at asking stupid question, what is WIP?

Cannot wait to see the final product.
Cheers, Annie

Annie,

I had the same question when I started  - W-I-P is Work in Progress.

Stoney,

Thank you, kindly.  The thing that's caused a heck of a lot of work is my not erasing the construction lines to make them fainter before giving the painting a coat of Liquin.  The coat of Liquin keeps the construction lines intact.  I can only cover those blue lines with paint to make them fainter.  On the plus side, it's added more dimension to the right side rocks.

What is Van Dyke Brown (contains no red)?   I thought brown were made from various oranges (which contains red) and blues.   Sounds like I have a lot to learn... 

Correct.  Van Dyke Brown contains no red.  It might be using no red other than what's in other colors in the mix.  I'm guessing here.

While I am at asking stupid question, what is WIP?

Cheers, Annie

There's no such thing as a stupid question.  Questions, generally, tend to fill holes in knowledge.  They can also be asked to ensure one understands something properly.  :)

This thing's got a long way to go.  I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't get finished until sometime next summer.

Looking good Stoney. Always best to work at your own pace. Things generally work out better  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:

I've learned that the hard way.  If I were to work faster it would take three times as long to fix it.

My long pauses to ponder things used to drive my old instructor nuts!  Painting was a totally alien area which was diametrically opposite all my (technical) life experience.

My current instructor told me they used to discuss my progress (made worse since I had no clue as to the difficulty of whatever current project piqued my interest).  The running joke was; "think of a vastly difficult project and it would be what I'd be working on".  I'd finish the projects which, I think, blew everyone away.

Anyway, current instructor used to tell the old instructor; "His background is technical (electrical and electronics).  He hasn't done any art since primary school.  But consider this; he usually comes up with the correct answer."

I've some idea of what I'm doing now.  I've a much better handle on color and perspective than I did, but it is nowhere near where it needs to be.

It keeps my mind active which is the whole point (and I have fun with it).

I can't wait to see the finished work, but I've no choice in the matter. :)
