The labours of Hercules

Warwick tells me he's started a commission of a Herc over Rongotai.
This is the initial sketch.. hope to see more as it progresses..

Gliding Further On...

Nearly there now..
This is from last weekend after adding more definition on the river valleys. Theyve been glazed over since then and the glider itself has been extensively tidied up and repainted. Notice the better clouds now too.
the glazing is working well, quite chuffed with the technique. One more push and were there! I think grumpyglider (the commissioner) is getting quite excited too...

3 more hours at the easel

Had a good go at the glider today.. had to really as Ive had about a month off painting due to an overseas holiday (south australia) and then a couple of weeks back at work and the ensuinging tiredness!!
So really got into the hills today and then glazed them all. Quite pleased really.. needs a few touches of black/blue spots and the glider itself being masked and cleaned up and Im done I think.

Picture is a bit naff.. taken with iPad and the shiny glaze made it too reflective.. bit of photoshop tweaking but not really too good.. will get a better one tomorrow with the camera.
