Here is an update for max on a swing. It's progressing not too badly.. i have redone the chains from the previous pic. I am not 100% positive how the grass will come out . i know i struggled with in on my horses piece. But i am pacing myself and really tested out my colours prior to starting so lets see how i go.

How did you do the grass so far? I like being able to see this as it progresses. I'll be back to see.

Thanks Joan.

I basically have done short stroke of different shades of brown and yellow. The darkest being Dark umber for the shadows :)

Layers layers and more layers :)

What a wonderful subject - I can see why you feel insired to do this piece!

I wasn't quite sure what you meant by the chains as they're not very obvious and have different values in the photo but are looking a little bit heavier in your drawing. I guess you're planning to knock them back later if you're working from dark to light?

Thanks Katherine, you have basically highlighted my problem i keep having ... :( i cant knock them back and now i realise i didnt "see" this correctly.

Now theres lots of other areas i realised i havent seen !!!

Thanks so much for pointing it out tho ... i think i need more eyes telling me bits that arent quite right mine dont seem to be working !!!
