Work In Progress...

Following on from my last post, I have finally got that brush to canvas! The under painting is done and I'm about ready to begin my colour layers...

Under painting

It's always nice to get rid of that scary white canvas...

Scary White Canvas

...Ahh... The blank canvas... So many possibilities it holds!
But it doesn't stay blank for long...

Under drawing

By the time you read this I will be about mid way through the painting.
I also have another one drawn out and ready to roll and a third Still Life set up in my Shadow Box. So it's all happening here!

I just love having a few things on the go at once. It's a great way of keeping a regular flow of new work trickling in. Right now it's a case of waiting for the first drip to come down the pipe! Well, those pipes did become a little rusty during the studio relocation!

...But, not long now!


  1. Bonjour ma chère Sandra,

    J'apprécie l'évolution de ton travail. C'est très intéressant de voir comment les uns et les autres progressent dans la réalisation d'une peinture.
    Cette dernière est en voie d'être une superbe oeuvre. J'ai hâte d'en voir plus !

    Gros bisous ♡

    1. Merci beaucoup Martine! Espérons que cela se révèle comment je l'imaginais!

  2. I love to watch a good WIP. Looking forward to seeing the next stages. ;-)

    1. Thanks John!
      I'll post some more on Friday :0)

  3. So glad to see you're up and running in the new space! Can't wait to see this completed! And good luck with the pipes!

    Also, thank you so much for your kind words on Howie, much appreciated!

    1. Thanks Suz! The pipes are taking a while - Slowly slowly... This is when I wish I worked with acrylics!! :0)

  4. I always enjoy seeing the different stages of a painting, especially when it has so many different layers as yours. And I admire your patience! My first attempt at oil painting has been in its underpainting state for over a year now. At least it's definitely dry by now... Getting those oil paints out at last is one of my goals for this year (again).

    1. I think Kay that you would love them once you got the ball rolling! You don't have to do it in such a long winded way, but I have to to get the result I'm looking for :0)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! Where possible I will respond via email. I really do love to read them! They always make me smile ;0)
