Starry Starry Night in progress

 This is what has distracted me from finishing my cattle painting,.I just had a sudden urge to paint a night scene with stars and some kids around a fire.Often when I get an idea ,I like to get it down on canvas as soon as possible.I had great fun doing the night sky,for the stars I simply splattered white paint with the bristles on one of my brushes.It is still unfinished as you can see,but I hope to finish it soon.

A beautiful sky. Thanks for sharing your technique. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished. Do you work on one painting at a time or do you have several going at one time? I've always got several irons in the fire at any given time. I wonder if I'd be more productive if I didn't start another until I finish what I'm working on.

Thanks for all your comments,Douglas I normally work on one painting at a time ,this is actually a first for me,the main reason is that I got fired up over an idea and wanted to get it painted as soon as possible.
