(4) Still working on this painting – most is still underpainting, but I’m almost finished covering the canvas – then I willÂ start on more of the details, etc.

(3) I’ve decided to paint this lady in a stained glass window gallery, I’ve started the stained glass on the right. The only thing complete about this painting is her face, and the orange cushion, everything else is underpainting so far. Her name hasn’t emerged yet either, this one may go to a vote….
I’m having a hard time getting a good photo – light flash, then burn – ugh.
Posting a close up of her face….

More work – started on the chaise lounge that I imagined, which has a sloping arm to allow for the tapestry to emerge from behind – in progess of course. TheÂ camera isÂ distorting some colours too.Â (18)

I had about 30 minutes to sketch this final pose, so I drafted it right onto canvas. I wrote in all the colours to remind myself what they were. I started filling in the colour when I got home, and her face emerged. This is all from memory now, so it’s going to take a life of it’s own. This painting will be the second of the MUSE series, the first being Big-Eyed Fiona. Not sure this one’s name yet…
I’ll be getting back to the W2 and the GI next week, I’m really into working on this one right now…..

Did some work on the face tonight – my new paint brushes are super-duper smooth.

Another hour on this one – still a long way to go. Our neighbour, who was an art instructor for many years just gave me the most wonderful gift – some of his art brushes (a whole set), I’ve never felt such a quality in a brush set before. I’m in bliss, it really does help with the painting, OMG, the paint just glides on now, rather than scratching the surface of the canvas.
