Horse and Carrots



I knew that I had not painted the right kind of leaves on the carrots and that was fine with me but I did think that I had made enough leaves and in the right places. I have walked by this painted a million times a day and just now when I took the photograph did I notice that I needed leaves hanging down on the yellow part of the wall. So strange the tricks our eyes can play on us.

Trompe L’oeil

I did a little more work on my horse mural while my grandson was over the other day. He inspires me.

I fooled my eye alright. I have no idea what I was thinking when I changed the horizon┬áline. The horizon┬áline that will now have to be changed back into the right place. And since my grandson wanted his picture taken as he petted the horse I now see that the body is way too small. And the mane that I added sticking out to the side has to be removed. All of these little reasons are why I don’t paint professionally, only for my amusement. Although I have done two paid projects that came out stunning. Trust me I was stunned.

So after those fixes there is still an open window pane to add. That should be interesting with all of the measuring and odd angles that will be involved.
