Some Experimenting and Some Plodding Along ...

I like the background. I wanted to stay away from dark, so I did a few w/w washes, then the final one, which I did w/w, dropping lines of pink and blue and encouraging them to flow vertically.

However, I am not thrilled with the leaves, which look seriously over-worked. I'm not sure if I'll finish this.

Buddy is coming along well, but oh-so-slowly!

It must be Spring fever. I feel the need to experiment more, with techniques and subjects.  It is beautiful out - mild and sunny. And I think I hear the call of the horse!!! I've painted for over an hour this morning, and I need to get outside!
