Let's try this again! The last (and first) time I posted the daily progress of one of my paintings, it was such a raging disaster, I finally gave up on it. Oh yes... I am a glutton for punishment. HA! I started this small loon piece yesterday morning and made good progress on my half-day of work. My intention is to pull the highlights from the water out of the darker base color. The finished product should be considerably lighter with a bit of sparkle............ we'll see.
