Can you tell I have been painting on this again? sometime the underpainting of Burnt Sienna looks like the painting itself. Today I was brave enough to have another go at it, studying it carefully for a place to begin I tried to continue. After having Ray;s wonderful help, and seeing that I had so much to correct last time I was a lot more hesitant. I do understand that this is my first studio painting in Oil, and that it will be a huge learning curve even to be able to mix my paint - - - -but I don't think I really understood the actual feel of working on this with no answers except to try this and that, in a way! Ray has been wonderful in his help, and the way he helps. He lets me do my thing---study that, then find ways to correct it. That way I can really see what I am doing or thinking wrong. I really appreicate his help.
I have a lot in the saddle area to do, and his rope to finnish, and most likly a lot of corrections - - -but this is where I am today.
