Solitude of My Dreams - Work in Progress Step 2

The background was a little too purple for me, so tonight I added some subtle washes of blue just to tone it down a bit.  Its still a little more blue in real life.  For some reason, my scanner is picking up the purples a little too much yet.

Solitude of My Dreams - Loon Work in Progress

It has been a while since I've painted a loon and I was truely captured by a photograph posted by Alan and Elaine Wilson over at Nature's Pics Online that I just had to give it a go.  My background turned out a little more purple than I imagined, but I think I'll work on the loon for a while to see if the purple grows on me.  Otherwise, I'll add a few washes of blue to tone it down a little.

A Moment Nearly Missed - Hummingbird Watercolour Painting

It has been awhile, but I have now finished this little painting.  Though, I did struggle with the leaves and flowers.

Ice Crystals - Work in Progress

Was a busy day today and I did not get any work done on the hummingbird painting.  So, I am going to post the startings on a new oil painting that I began during the holidays.  It is based on a photograph I took last year after the ice storm of 2013.  I have so many beautiful pictures of the ice crystals against the blue sky that I had a hard time deciding which one to paint.
