Default A Bit Of Color

Tried a colored burning today .

This was on a piece of the new poplar wood I got.

Don't be afraid to critique this . I can handle it . .lol . .
I have a LOT to learn and this one I did in my usual rush habit that I have a hard time controlling.
I didn't try any of the great color blending advice I got here and elsewhere apart from a little dry blending with the oil pencils themselves.
When I do more coloring on another project I will experiment with the various solvents and methods of application.
At least this one will be something to refer back to in order to compare it with my progression going forward.

It looks great, very nice colors and cool subjects. Like the poplar frame as well, it is well made and has great finish. Well done!

Thanks for the remarks but the frame is not poplar. Guess I should have explained that better . The poplar is the poplar plywood I recently purchased on line to try it out compared to Baltic birch which is readily available locally .

The frame is oak. Just a cheap Wal-Mart frame . I grab up a bunch of those whenever they go on sale for around 4 bucks each . I can't make them for that price . Heck . . . can't even buy the glass in them locally for that much .
