Re-touching the tree and madonna

I was tweaking the painting with the colored pencils, and was able to save the baby a bit. I think I will hit it again with the acrylics and see if I can fix it.

These came in backwards, somehow. The tree on the right is with acrylics only before I tried mixing in the colored pencils. I have been looking at the oil pastel pencils, but havent made the $$plunge yet. But it did help wake up and give more definition and shading to the bark and the grass and the leaf masses too. I think it was an improvement.

Hi Penelope! Thanks for all the bids and for stopping by the blog. I am brainstorming about doing some prints and also thinking about doing some paintings to post on etsy when everything slows down in January- so everyone gets a fair shot....

Love your blog!
