Wooden Post Landscape part deux WIP

I really enjoyed painting the first Wooden Post Landscape picture, but knew I wanted to do it again, I started last week, worked on it today (yesterday now) for about 2 hours each time, I am so happy with how this one is turning out, there is much more detail and more accuracy in this one, I love painting and drawing wood, the post is much more like the real post out in my yard, especially the old nail holes. One thing I did differently than the original photo is I made the mountains more prominent, they almost vanish in the background, so I made them stand up a bit higher.

Of course right now this is a WIP, not finished yet, I hope to get it done after church tomorrow, I need to work on the closer dark branches on the right, and I need to add the old, curled, rusty fence wire. I must study how the wire moves away on the right side to make the perspective look right.

I created this using Fluid Watercolor block paper, hot press finish, 9x12, so far I have painted with Derwent Inktense Blocks, I'll use Derwent Inktense Pencils to do the wire fence.

Another thing I've started, well actually I'm waiting for 2 note takers Bibles to arrive, I am going to start Bible art journaling, I am very excited to do this, I hope the Bibles show up this next week, though I doubt I'll have time to start anything because it's going to be a very busy week at work, perhaps by the following weekend I can start... I'll post more about this as things start to happen. :)
