Jole Blons

I am trying to backlight a cold scene. I keep changing the ground and then the sky and then the wool and then the............I keep adding more and more paint to this. I wanted to look at it in thumbnail. Does anybody but me do that? Do you ever see that one thing that should have been so obvious? I think looking at your work in thumbnail is better than any mirror or upside down.
Oil on canvas 14"X11"

What great colors and composition, Rick! I love that quizzical look on the sheep to the left.

Another trick is to look through the wrong end of a pair of binoculars. It's like standing far away. The pair I have are a smallish, opera glass type binoculars.

Nice paintings, I like your style and subject matter. Boat scenes and animals especially!

You're it! I kinda like your paintings and your site, so I just awarded you the Sunshine Blogger award. Congrats, visit my site to retrieve it! Just don't touch anything. (Like the sheep, by the way)

the coloring is superb....the light perfect. And of course the little sheep are adorable!

Sort of Merry Christmas.... from the baby's point of view. Really beautiful.

If a painting doesn't look good in thumbnail size, it probably won't look good across the room when hanging on a wall. I always view thumbnail size before beginning (sketch or photo reference) and when finishing.
