My hubby thought I should take pics of one of my paintings at each step to document the process.  I thought it was  kind of a neat idea, so I forced myself to let paint dry (urgh) and scan my work at intervals through completion of my recent painting of a barred owl. The background is done with a wax-resist technique. I alternated layers of wax and paint (acrylic) until I got the final background colour, then scraped up all the wax.  I then painted the tree and owl on top of the background.  Here it is in 11 pics.



A low res scan (sorry  Embarrassed) of the finished painting:
