Almost There....

From being one of the most daunting paintings I have undertaken for a while, this has suddenly become very close to being finished.    It has been quite a challenge - I didn't realise how many colours and nuances of hues would be in this when I agreed to take it on - but it has also been enormous fun. Such a change of pace after using coloured pencils for most of the year!

I am the lucky owner of this wonderful wonderful painting...i have been wanting to get the photo made into painting for years....my sneaky friends got Caroline to do it without my knowledge....it really is amazing how she has manage to capture the true depth and warmth of the photo...it really takes me back to the beach on Lake Michigan just outside an artists town called Saugatuck in the state of Michigan..i was looking across the lake towards where Chicago would be....and i managed to get some amazing photos...this being one of them.
Many many thanks Caroline for making this come to life.
Lee.
