Amy's art in progress.
See regular updates of my progress on each new painting.


I finally figured out my newest painting!  It's going to be of Edinburgh Castle in Scotland.  (I will probably make the cliff higher in the actual painting though...) I'll start painting soon so stay tuned!  


I got started with some distraction... you know who you are. 


I started the cliff today...


More rocks and sky too... 


I moved the castle to the right and changed the sky and wall as well.  

Song of the Day: Needtobreathe, "Again."  


I'm working on the color of the castle.

Song of the Day: Coldplay, "Kingdom Come."


I'm still working on the color of the castle.

Song of the Day: Needtobreath, "Yahweh"

"Cathedrals have tried in vein to show the image of your face, we are by your design the signature of divine..."


I had lots of time to work today.  I added the trees and red stripes to the sidewalk.  I also changed the color of the castle AGAIN- it's still not quite the right color yet. 

(Note: I forgot to post on 10.10.07- I added the light green to the hill and the walkway in the foreground then.)

Song of the Day: U2, "Beautiful Day."  :) So inspirational... for some reason.


I changed the color of the castle still needs work.  I also added more to the grass in the middle.

Song of the Day: Nick Drake, "Pink Moon." (thanks Kim!)


I changed the color of the castle again and the sky too. 

Album of the Day: David Crowder, "Remedy."


I changed the color of the middle wall and I added a little brighter blue in the sky.  I also covered the tree trunk at the bottom.  The walkway at the bottom still needs to be a different color though and I'm still not sure about the castle and wall colors... they may be too warm right now.  I'm  getting closer though. 

Song of the Day: Gavin DeGraw, "Follow Through."


I changed the reddish wall to make the colors cooler so that they recede a little more.  I also added some blue highlights throughout the rocks and to the walkway in the foreground.  I'm making progress but there is still more work to be done... 


I changed the castle color again and I also added more contrast to the bottom of the rocks.  I also added the tree trunk. Almost done... I think.

Song of the day: The Beatles, "I want to hold your hand" 


I'm still working on the grassy part... it's going through an awkward phase.


So I went a little crazy on the grass...


So I decided to change the grass again...

Song of the Day:  Norah Jones, "Lonestar."

everyone would do it.  The hard is what makes it great."
