Painting like mad
Today I've been painting since I finished my first coffee. I've been working
with a wonderful model and I'm greatly inspired. Guess what? Yes. It's snowing
again. My client this afternoon couldn't stay because it was snowing -- she
broke her leg four months ago, and is afraid of falling on the ice that still
gilds our streets. This is one of my paint egg cartons
(that's acrylic). I work with three of these plus about 100 tubes
at the moment. The abstract is a test piece of paper I
use to see if the colour is what I need. The little painting
is a later version of the fruit study from last week, and there's
a detail of a figure I'm working on.
Have an ingenious day.
