finished the 'painting'...

Just the gold and resin left to apply to these now. Really pleased with the way they're going. Gorgeous day today, got some good work done, had lovely walk in sunshine with Bryn, wonderful pint with good friends in the evening...a damn near perfect day :-) if only it could go on longer

Thanks to Aimee & Bex who came over to do some modelling this morning, more of them in the coming weeks. This afternoon I've mainly been working on the painting of Jo, lovely pattern on her dress...nightmare to paint lol

2 of 4...

I've started on these two pictures today. I need to get four paintings done for Meller (in theory by the end of this month...) so i've got 'snow white' which is going well, the red one of katie, which isn't...and now of Jo with an Apple and one of her daughter Lucy, with some leaves...both are using some of the elements from the snow white painting, so hopefully they'll go together well.....

more red bits...

Lots of interesting textures in this now, but its not working yet. I've been painting a lot of it with my fingers...which takes me back...seems to help the paint work over the textured surface better though.

working on the red piece

I've roughed in Katie on this piece today...painting on such a textured surface is a challenge...

A new month and another new piece started, Bryn doesn't look to impressed so far but this is just the first layer of the background, eventually its going to be another portrait of Katie, but as you can see, much larger this time. Have also been working on snow white, the areas painted Orange will be gilded with gold. Most of the drawing is now done on this, still need to do the man in the moon though. I took the green painting of Katie up to the RA yesterday, so we'll see what happens this year ;-)
