    Stonehenge

    Well this had been going well. Now Im stuck with the background and foreground. I thought that would fall in place--and it probably will--but so far nothing seems to be working. Maybe I just need to sleep before doing anything else. Its nearly 7:30 am.

    Ill get it sorted out.

    All AR: oils, palette knife (a little) and basic canvas.

    I know you'll sort it out brilliantly Scott. Maybe some sort of twilight lighting scheme picking out a few edges of your lovely stones?

    Thanks Nick,

    I think with a good nights rest all should eventually fall in place. I appreciate your suggestion. Id been toying with that idea. Well see what happens.

    Make the values work and you're home free.

    Are you painting over a photo? Or are you eyeballing it? Reason I'm asking is because the values in the photo would give you a pretty good idea of what you can use as a starting point.

    Of course photos can frequently be improved. But it's a start. Often times blocking in the color/values works as a point at which to aim and finesse later by pulling up the lights or whatever. . . if it's not working.

    Good start. Green is an interesting choice.

    Looking good! Nice and mossy looking (I'm a sucker for old stone structures ).
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Love the color choice; leaves you with lots of possibilities. From the great minds department, I had some sort of henge image on my to do someday list.

    Thanks D akey, someonesane, and Robert for your suggestions!

    Im certain that Ill get something going to finish this one. It may take a while--my wifes son and his wife arrive today for a weeks visit. That will probably keep me away from the computer for a bit.
