The move back home was pure frackkin genius, I tell you!
I hung the blankest of my canvases on the work-area I've set up behind my garden door without actually intending to paint anything (what with admin and dishes to do), but an hour later I had a viable underpainting for a new piece. This is how it looks now, after about 5 hours of actual work (not including tea-breaks, sleep and watching Firefly reruns on my PC).
|10 minutes -ish. Pretty-much just the palette knife|
|About half an hour; starting to use the brush a bit.|
|About an hour or so.|
|I'd kinda lost track of time by this stage but it was about 10pm.|
|How it looked this morning as the sun came up. Yeah, having my studio at home in winter is frikkin AWESOME!|
