Default Knight and Castle Wood Burning

Hi Everyone! Haven't been here in a while because I've been tinkering with some oil paintings.

I put the paints aside and started this wood burning yesterday. I did one similar a few months back and liked it so much that I decided to do another.

I'm going to be applying some color to this one. I added a little color to the castle as an experiment, and it turned out OK. The water around the castle will be painted in.

The trees will have leaves burnt in which will surround the view of the castle.

Still in the burning process.

I'll apply more color when the time comes.

This project is going to take some time to do, so I'll update pics periodically.

Thanks for viewing and have a great day.

It's always a good day when you wake up, so don't sweat the small stuff.

Well except for being envious of your talent, welcome back and your work is top notch.

Thank you VERY much. I appreciate it.

I have a lot of work to do on this piece. I fuss around with detail and it may take me a week to complete.

Later

WOW Karen,

The detail on that one really challanges your talent, but you never seem to blink.

Excellent work!

Bob and George,

Thank you for the encouraging words.

I have been working on this today, but don't see enough changes yet to post an update. I have been darkening up the muscle tone of the horse and fabric folds.

I'm going to start detailing the rider this afternoon. After I get the rider done, I'll post an update.

Hello, Welcome! That is great. I can't even imagine how long that took. I tried that when i was a teenager, That's about 50 years ago, I still wonder what happened too all that time. Welcome to the forum! Hope that you can post some more, and pretty soon, There will be others who will post more. Thanks Karen, I will wait to see more!
