Well, here is the finished product. Somehow lost the greater contrasts I had in the earlier stages, but felt the figures needed to be more 'closed in' by all those majestic trees and thought the gap I had originally was rather contrived at the end of the pathway.

Had fun with all my texture overlays for the woods keeping the path and figures smoother, as can be seen from the following closeups.

In this post I am glad to say all three images can be enlarged by clicking to reveal the thickly layered paint and variety of colours used.

Now I wonder what will happen with my next practice effort of playing with squirted colours.

I really like all of that texture.

Looking good! (The N & N Art Circle critique session was cancelled today because of the weather.)

Yowza! Even the textures tell a story! I love all of the paintings!

I love all your paintings but my favorite thing in the world is grandchildren. Not just mine but all the children in the world that are blessed with grandparents and the grandparents that are blessed grandchildren.

I love that you used your grandchildren as a model for the children in the painting.
