I made a few changes to this the other day. Will try to take another photo of it and post it...see if anyone can spot the subtle changes. It may be difficult as this is not a terribly good photo to begin with:0

Love all your work! You are an inspiration to me!

What a nice thing to say. So many artists are an inspiration to me and its kinda strange to think I would actually inspire anyone....being that I don't consider myself to be a very good painter...just a hard worker :)

Beautiful. I had a Maxfield Parrish/N C Wyeth moment when I saw this. Such a wonderful sky! I love to paint skies and would love to take some instruction. I usually worked in oils. I tend to make mudpies with acrylics but would love to master them. Your painting makes me want to go and grab a paint brush again :)

Thank you! It's easy to paint with acrylics without the 'mud'. Because acrylics dry so quickly I tend to paint with multiple layers to get the colors. Some parts may have 20 layers of paint before I feel that the color 'works', but by putting one thin layer over another the color is slowly changed. Sometimes I do it with kind of a 'dry brush' method, just lightly drawing the brush across the surface and sometimes thing the paint a bit and kind of 'stain' the layer underneath. If thinning much remember to add a little acrylic medium. I usually don't thin the paint that much and just use a little water. Mostly I find it just takes some patience to get the right colors....slow shifts....and some practice, of course, as you are well aware because you are already an experienced painter. As far as instruction goes, I would love to put a video or two together, but don't have the finances...so that may be in the future.
