"Yardsale Treasures" Progress

*If you click on the picture then right click on the "view" then you can zoom in.

I made a lot of progress yesterday....painted for 10 hours!  It took a long time to paint all the clothing!  Lots of folds but I enjoy that much more than the background.  I didn't want to overpower any of them but I wanted more focus to be on the one with the blue suite.  Got some more to paint today but can't work on it for as long...we'll see how far I get.  The woman with the suit has a pin on her lapel but I'm not sure whether to put it in....I just might.

"Yardsale Treasures"

So I've finally started the painting I made a sketch of and it was really difficult to do the background.  This is my second attempt and I like it a lot better than the other one so that's a good start.  I'm happy with it so far and I'd love comments or opinions if you want to critique it....always could use a second set of eyes!!
