A Close up...

My commissioned piece is down to the final few glazes.  I'm so pleased with the results so far but a bit nervous about the glazing which will hopefully darken a large area of the painting.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to post a picture of it until July after the wedding it's meant for.

I did get a request from Myra, a friend and awesome artist, to attach a photo of my little boat painting up close. So this is for you my friend:

Unfortunately the only brushstrokes you can see are the ones from the undercoating, which was bright orange by the way.


  1. Sweet. (In the 21st-century sense of "cool", not the 20th-century one of "cute") :)

  2. Beautifully painted, Bonnie!!

  3. That boat painting is just beautiful, Bonnie! I know it must feel pretty good to be close to having your wip so close to completion. Can't wait to see it!

  4. Wow, this is wonderful!
    I don't know who to thank, you or Myra!
    I know thanks to you both!!
    Wow... Great painting Bonnie.

  5. Beautifully painted and so dramatic, great painting.

  6. hey bonnie! it's update time! what are you working on?
