I'm proud to say that this one is all finished. It was 3 weeks of work + a lot of sketching and compositional studies. I didn't end up doing an oil sketch for this one, but I probably should have.
I'd never attempted a painting this large (32" X 24") and this complex, but I'm very happy with the final finish.
I'll be shipping this along with some signed prints of "The Butterfly" to Dog & Horse Fine Art within the next few weeks. I still have to varnish this one also..
