Going Places Day 4, Leonard Wolfe

" Going Places "
Day 4
Not much time for painting today. One more goose left to block in. My paints have dried somewhat so remixed fresh colors that I needed today. I hope to get the last goose roughed in and begin the grass areas tomorrow, refine the shadows falling on the geese. Right now I want the grey goose on the left to be the center of interest. However, I won't know for certain until I have the last goose painted. It may need to be one of the white ones because of the high contrast.
No tips today. How about a favorite quote?
I've mentioned it before but I can never say it to myself often enough!

Oh, and I did come across a post-it note that I have in my easel area:"

Hi Jennifer,

I am loving this painting, and what captured my attention this morning are the wonderful shadow shapes on the yellow wall. Good luck with the last goose. Liz

Thanks, Liz. I think this painting will end up having a very sunny disposition to it.

Thanks, Becky. One thing and another has kept me out of the studio this week. I am anxious to finish this painting, can't wait to start the next.

Thanks, Nancy for the tag. I have done this tag thing twice before. I usually dread the thought of the time to follow through but end up liking the process if only to go see some of my favorite artists, see their current work and TAG them! It's all fun.
