New Amish Painting Continued…

Well, I figured I’d show you how far I’ve gotten on this new Amish pastel painting, and even though it’s come along way…there’s still a lot to go.  I figured it would be kind of cool for you all to see the painting come alive through the different stages. I am very happy with it so far and it’s just how I imagined it in my head.  I still need to add board separations to the barn behind her, some pine needle boughs hanging above her head to the left with snow added to the sill of the barn window and snow flakes on her hair, coat, etc.  I want this to look like a perfect winter painting, as I will use this for my December painting in the calendar I want to create next. Hope you like how it looks so far…back to the drawing board!

The face painted in, and it seems to have a life now. The barn window is positioned and the white, barn wall is started.

The face and hair further detailed. When I get the eyes the way I want them, it’s on it’s way!

She’s holding her firewood and a part of her green dress shows just above her winter coat. That green will also be used in the pine branches I will draw to the upper left, snow covered of course. I still have a lot of detail work to finish…so there’s more to go!
