thanks for the response, Kathy, very interesting. Well, it must be very rewarding and worth every moment spent on it, when you obtain a result like this : ) beautiful work.

Hi Alandra, I tend to spend a "lot" of time with a painting. I usually have 4 sittings, first the sketch and wash, then I have to wait for that to dry a day, then I start to block in the main colors and shapes, trying to get the tones the way I want them, then in another I spend time on details, then leave it alone for a few days then come back and make any touchups or corrections I feel I need to. I lose track of time when I paint and frequently can spend 8 or 9 hrs. in one sitting depending on what stage i'm in. But it is very rewarding when it turns out the way I want it to. I'm mainly self taught, read many books on it and have taken a few courses. Thanks for asking &:-)

meant to ask you Kathy, how long would it take you to complete a painting like this? Not meaning to be nosey, just interested. It seems to me, it would take a lot of time, with all those tree branches, fronds and leaves etc. Did you take art lessons, or is this just something that comes naturally to you, it certainly is a gift, anyway. It must be very rewarding to be able to accomplish such a lovely painting

thought the same about this one being a photo, these are getting "better and better" with each one I view. Such talent!
