SOLD- thanks Elise!
Thanks for the feedback- almost overwhelmingly the third sketch is the favorite. I also feel- though I may have challenges anatomically with the neck and shoulders, that this image will be the easiest- free flowing and nice... not as loaded as the other two could be. I will post the painting as it progresses. Right now I am excited about the sunshine and a forecast that promises I might be able to paint on location tomorrow! Did I tell you I live in this most beautiful place on earth. This landscape is why I want to live here. This actual site is where I wanted to have my son's eyes first open to daylight and whisper to him, "welcome to the planet earth", 6822 days ago today.
