Rue Carnot, Vernon, France
13 [33.0cm] x 10-5/16 [26.2cm]
This piece is 13 [33.0cm] x 10-5/16 [26.2cm] and was taken from a photograph we took on 16 Aug. 11 close to Claude Monet's estate in Giverny, France. This piece presented a major challenge in Perspective, but with the help of Peter White I was able to produce what I think, is good perspective.  Re-do's were unfortunately many until I achieved some semblance of what I was trying to achieve. It was finished with 6 coats of sanding sealer, 3 coats of satin wipe-on-poly then finally polished with Renaissance wax.  
Work started on 18 Jun 12 and finished 6 Nov 12 although much of that time was spent rebuilding the AMS web site. It is all Scalpel cut.
