Hi all, I actually finished this last week but trying to handle computer problems limited my time for art work.
The one thing I learned was to mask very very carefully in the beginning. When I removed the misket, I had a lot of huge white blobs and I did find that I spent a lot of time try to repair. After spending several days looking at what I had finished I must say I am quite pleased with my outcome.
I do plan to spend some time now working on other paintings that I already have drawn out. It seems I was totally ambitious when I went to Florida as to how much I could accomplish but I have a large variety of drawn out ideas ready to go. Now to just get into that studio and put brush to paper.
