I’ve found that when I paint a piece with strong shadows, it helps to do a rough shadow map. I usually rough them out in pencil. Then in the spirit of competing with Tim, The Forester Artist, I thought a shadow map using his pens would be a good bet.
Shhh. Don’t tell.

Once again, Tim (The Forester Artist) and I are competing head-to-head in an auction for the Sierra-Cascade Environmental and Resource Fund. He soundly defeated me last year at the Education Auction Dinner. I hope to turn the tables this year.
Tim thinks he knows what I’ve been working on. But, I’ve been concealing my piece until it’s ready for the reveal. He sees bits and pieces, here and there. I see no need to give him a heads up as to what I’ve been working on. Do you?
Pheasant parmesan for dinner after a bountiful day in the field. I’d love to know your favorite way to enjoy pheasant. Click to enlarge images.

A nice wrap to a day at Clear Creek Sports Club.
The entire pack when we returned home. Tasha is on maternity leave so she wasn’t at the club with us. She enjoyed the birds once we got home.
