Hi RRSum,

I'm really enjoying this one. These are so beautiful. I can smell the fresh air and feel the coolness on my face. Ahhh. Besides bears are my favorite wild animal.

What a treat - thanks,

Julie

I agree with Julie Rich, the mood in this one is so well depicted, I can smell the pines and hear the distant russle in the trees.
The bear is very nicely done!
And thanks SO much for putting the tutorial you made for this painting in the tutorial forum!!!
I owe you one Buddy! :wink:

Thanks Linda,
This was a fun one to paint. I need to take a better picture. This one is kind of dark.

It's on display with 24 of my other paintings this month at an exhibit here in Boise. :wink:

Rich,

Looks like another blue ribbon with this one. I love the way you can paint anything so perfectly.

Do you use the Script liner
ush for the grass?

My shaky hands could never paint lines like that. Wish there was some kind of stabilizing
ace I could wear on my arm. Huh! Huh!

I have a bad shake when I target shoot with a riffle also. Could never keep the site lined up in place. It's very frustrating.

Hi Karen,
Thank you for the kind words! Yes, I use the script liner
ush for the taller grasses, weeds and small detail work.

For the taller grasses, I just freehand them with quick, looping strokes.

For the smaller grasses around rocks, trees, etc. I sometimes use a mall stick or a board that I can rest against my easel so it's elevated above my canvas. That allows me a lot of control.

Glad you like!
Rich

Thanks for the tip about a board or something for stabilization. I never thought of that.

They do make riffle tripods, wish somebody would invent a painting tripod.

I'll practice because this is an ongoing problem with me. I have shaky hands when it comes to straight lines. My
ush pressure gets away from me and leaves a little blob of paint making an uneven line. URGGGG!

Hi Mike! Perhaps my shaky hands will come in handy some day (if that would ever happen). I don't mind the back and forth, it's the up and down that causes the blob of paint which bothers me.

Later

Have a good day.

Karen
