Well that was interesting! Anyone who paints or creates is most likely very familiar with the roller coaster effect of the process. It’s going great — a few brush strokes later you’re not certain. Then you’ve lost all hope of saving it — too dark, wrong hue, too much… Anyway after all of that, here’s the final painting of the pine cone. This is the small version — 5″ x 7″. I plan to start an over-sized — 20″ x 30″ version soon.
