Progress - July 28

Started a new study
If it is successful I have a 24 x 24" canvas waiting
What a beautiful subject, it almost paints itself

Still working out the values for the civil war painting
This is taking a while but I am enjoying the process

Progress July 22

Trying to complete the values on my civil war painting
It's taking a while because there are so many values! I wish I could keep going but I have to stop for the day

Civil war picture

I spent the last week volunteering at church
I'm afraid that hurt my productivity 
Back to the grindstone tomorrow 
I did manage to start my cavalry painting
Going to get it under control this week

More progress

The medium I'm using helped the paint dry faster than I thought.
I was able to continue with this study today.
It's a small picture, 12" by 12".
I may paint a bigger version. I need to name it. Nothing comes to mind at this point.

Today's progress

Stopping for the day
I am happy with the progress
At this point the picture has to dry for a few days. After it is dry I can start the tack.

Summer studies

I had the chance to photograph the Northern Ohio Outlaws on Friday. As usual they all looked great and ride and shot exceptionally well. I got a lot if beautiful reference photos. It will be a while before I can process all of them. These are a couple of studies from this reference.
