On the Home Stretch

All that remains is to sift through my photographs of Black-Footed Rock Wallabies to find one that suits this scene. The photo that prompted this painting includes a wallaby, but I think there are better poses to choose from among my other photos.


As well as adding a wallaby, I'm sure I'll fiddle with the foreground just a little before I call it done. Whichever wallaby I choose, I know where it will be positioned and I've left the back wall of the cave a little lighter there to provide some latitude for fine tuning as a final step.

Cheers
Pete

Looking great as usual Pete.

Thanks Scott. At this stage, I'm still searching through my photographs looking for a wallaby to fill the lead role!

Beautiful painting as it is Peter. I'm not sure it even needs a wallaby but I'm sure you'll pull it off.

Thank you Erik. Yes, it's tempting to call it finished having progressed this far without major blunders, but I'm firmly committed to populating the cave with a wallaby or two!
