Adjusting the General Store Painting

Hello, blog readers! Today is my 66th birthday, and I’m happy to be indoors painting. I decided to go nuclear on this painting that had too little contrast for my liking. After blocking in large dark areas I’m now waiting for paint to dry so I can “play” in the shadows. I have some extensive plans to nuance the large, darker areas.

Thanks for reading!

    Happy Birthday, David! I hope you have a wonderful day of celebration. This is certainly a birthday to remember!

    I’m enjoying your “Hank” series, and look forward to seeing more of your paintings.

    Stay safe!

    Becky, thank you so much for posting and for such a kind response! This day has been very warm for me and full of Adventure. And, I’m glad I finally got this painting finished. Thank you so much for your interest in Hank. I am so enthused as I work to build a series of paintings and stories around him.
