WIP... Commission.

 I've never been very good at being 'between' paintings. 
Over time, I have realised that anything more than a short absence from my studio, can actually leave me feeling quite frustrated and even anxious!

Now that we have finished decorating the hallway, I'm relieved to finally get back behind the easel! And first to take the stand is a commission and I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in!

It's quite complex piece but I do love a challenge! And this time I am painting large ...Well, large for me anyway at 24 x 30 inches.

Anyway, I thought I'd share the first stage with you...




The colours in this will be very 'tropical' when it's complete :0)
Meanwhile I am planning to get another one or two pieces on the go over the next couple of weeks.

So I have plenty going on in my studio!
 What's going on in yours?

    1. Thanks Susan...It's at the scary stage right now, so after an hour on it this morning I decided I needed to have some time away from it! Back to it at the weekend! Meanwhile I'm working on a couple of drawings instead :0)

    1. Thanks Hilda! I didn't think of doing a video... I doubt I'd have enough memory on my camcorder to film it, lol! I will do a demo soon though on a smaller painting :0)
