Some who have been following my story may find this of some interest. It's a couple of paintings from the story, that I decided to upgrade.

The first one is the Autumn scene from chapter 10. I was never happy with the water on this one. It was too flat, and looked almost like painted plastic. One of the good things about layers, is that I was able to go in, remove the old, and paint the new without messing everything up. I also did a little touch up work with Sean and Mariska.

The second one is from chapter 17, where Sean and Mariska are forced to travel down a dangerous, narrow, and steep riverside trail.
When I did the original, I went at it from the perspective of a landscape, and it just never quite was what I had hoped.
This time, I focused on bringing it up close, to better tell the story, and I think it works a lot better.
The Ohio River is from a stencil that I created, and enhanced with the pencil and knife.
