Finished the cypressversion (made in XFrog), reduced to 70%. Original was at AA8, and ran within 2 hours. Now up to something else....

Your gifts are many. What a great ability to apply both the artistic and logical assets you have been given.
Your love of nature is very evident as well as your attention to detail. Those fresco murals are amazing also. Do you teach in addition to all that you do? (Aside from all the assistance you freely give here in this forum)

Thanks very much. I was fortunate enough never to have to do teaching  ;) Not my forte.
I tried to make stairs (LW) like in the Lagoon yesterday. Would be nice to duplicate that painting in TG. It needs to be such that I can fit a rock outcrop next to it, with some angles, so I'll have another go at it.

I've worked in oils mostly. Underpainting and several layers of glazing and opaque medium and lighter patches. The film of paint is very important, adding to the mystery. The white egrets are among my favorite birds, so I keep them in my work, indeed.

Managed some stairs, but it was pretty hard to fit a terrain to it. Probably easier to make a 'terrain object' next to it.

Here's another one of my paintings.
