Hi All Artist Hearts,
We are nearing the final stages of this painting before we start making plans to choose the complimentary mats and frame and special Bible verse that goes with this special composition.  There are only a few more stages left to post before we start another new series.

The sky has been developed substantially including the river and land below the nest site. The addition of the river will add that important element describing the height and perspective of the nest compared with the ground below as you will see more clearly in the fuller view in next post as the river and land mass become darker.  We are seeing the world from the Eagle's point of view where our invisible horizon line is located.

Also the addition of the pine branches hanging out over the river from the nest add to this effect and the feeling of height from this aerial perspective.

Until next time keep inspired and your brushes wet!
Blessings,  Jan.
