Slowly emerging Birds

The work on the painting is proceeding slowly. I'm trying to make brave and competent decisions on the last few that they blend and flow with the initial passages of paint.

It seems like the middle to last part of the painting has to be more deliberate and cautious -- so much more to lose!

Ah... maybe tomorrow it will be done.

This is going to be outstanding..I am so sure!.I wonder how many washes does this kind of painting take.?

there are a few layers of washes to finish this off ARTI... but I think after 3 I pretty much quit. It gets too dark after that!

Good to hear from you. Your new work is lovely.
