Beautiful colors and your negative painting is great. You made that pencil sketch come alive.

B E A U T I F U L!! well done
Proverbs 8:29-30 NKJV

When He assigned to the sea its limit, So that the waters would not transgress His command, When He marked out the foundations of the earth, Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman; And I was daily His delight, Rejoicing always before Him,

Thank you, so much, everyone!  I really had fun with this one. After looking at it a while, I figured out what was bothering me - I hadn't gone back to do the darker areas like in my value sketch. I loved the colors, but it was mostly mid-values, so I deepened the shadows and made it a bit more moody. I should always check my value sketch and trust it. Every single time I stray from the formula, I pay the price!
