I have a couple of commissions waiting in the wings, but have a few days free to paint something else of my own - not sure what yet, but I do have a new set of liquid pencil to play with...

I started with some mixed washes and sprinkles of salt for texture, but I think most of the texture achieved has been lost after painting in the shadows and deeper colours. Not too bothered about that, if it shows, it shows. The further the painting progresses, the more I realise just how much guano there is to be painted! A lot of that is being added with white acrylic on a stick and smeared with fingers. I love painting...
On the needles...nothing, it's all sewing this week!

Considering the photos supplied were not the best - for the beige dog anyway - I am very pleased with how this turned out.
I have a short break in between commissions, so intend to get a painting done that I have had in my head for a couple of weeks, as well as having to frame five paintings for the Fleet Art Society exhibition at the beginning of June.

Lots on the go, plenty of sewing to be done and another portrait in the pipeline.

I'm also sewing, some more interesting props for an animation - currently labouring over a gramaphone that is only 4 inches high. It's a head-scratcher!
