“Red Chair” is so close to completion, but, it seems every time I think I finished a section and rotate onto another, it reveals new places needing work. It has taken considerably longer than I predicted and I am certainly stretching myself with this one! Knowing where to soften detail and sharpen it is key here. I couldn’t have set myself a more difficult challenge. I hope the outcome proves worthy of the effort! We’re looking at Wednesday for completion. I may post it here on Friday… so these photos and this blog post are a little interlude. I need to step away from time to time to make sure I don’t overwork an area.
After nearly 3 weeks of fighting this cold and working with “Red Chair” a little longer than that, I thought a change of scenery would be good, so I took a little break this weekend and went out the Craigleith Provincial Park. Famous for its shale beaches covered in fossils, this Park has to have some of the most beautiful scenery within steps of the campsites. Note the con trail over the sunset in the first one! You can see more of these on my Facebook Page and on my Flickr page – Enjoy!
