Next Gig...Oz!

"Next Gig...Oz"
12" x 12"
oil on wrapped canvas

Painted at my new easel...I am in love. So steady and sturdy and fixated in one spot. This protagonist is actually more true to height. I noticed in the practice piece, I ran out of room to give her those longer legs I was hoping for. Best reason I know to do a practice run, then you can decide what the particulars are and where you need to tweak and allow for.
Best thing is..Oz is just over the hill.

Love it! the legs look perfectly fine to me. She looks like she's on her way to her dreams just over the other side.

Love the story in this! Just had to smile. The long legs fit her style nicely. After all, it's a long long walk down that Yellow Brick Road. The red ground looks so great peeking out.

Beauuutiful final version. Love the longer legs and the punched up values. You have a reeeally nice color sense, Ms. Wall. Also, your chickens are gorgeous!! Love the eyes especially and the strong colors.
