This is the first of two paintings, for a friend's cottage. They're from photographs I took years ago. His dad made the chairs. I've spent three days painting this one, and have only done a small area. I think it's going to take a while...
This is the original photograph.
Slowly working on the leaves in the background. I haven't decided if I'm going to add any text to this or not. I need to find a verse I like to go with them, or write one, if I can't find one that exists already. This is layer one of at least three.
I managed to get a bit more done. I would like to attach a bit of text to it, but I haven't found the right verse yet.
Managed to get layer one on the entire chair. So far, so good.
