The Finish Line

I think I can see the finish line. Isn't it that faint object off in the distance?

Yay! Peter, you may actually beat me to the finish line. I too have only bits to do on my last squirrel and then a few touch ups here/there and I'll call it "done".
We'll both sit back and feel quite happy I'm sure.
I LOVE the rock work you've done and I can appreciate (it being watercolor) how much has gone into it. Mr. Wallaby seems almost ready to jump out of the painting!

Colette, I can't believe you haven't finished your squirrel painting. Come to think of it, I can't believe it's taking me so long to finish this one! Oh, and it's acrylic - watercolour is for masochists.

I could swear that looked like watercolor! Oh and I guess I'm masochistic. I use watercolors like they're acrylics...have a look here (, you'll see what I mean. That fox was pretty brutal in terms of eye strain with each little hair (took over 40hrs).

I absolutely LV the new detail on the rocks on your most recent post. It's just going to be fab all the way!

Colette, you use watercolours like they're acrylics and I use acrylics like they're watercolours!

Your fox would certainly tested your patience - and your eyesight - it's incredibly detailed.
