Getting ready to paint!

Ah, getting ready to paint after a long morning of email, bookkeeping, etc. Blah!

I'm currently working on a big commissioned painting (the blue and peach one on my webcam right now). I'm doing a "fancy" sky, which means that I am using a clear acrylic blending medium to help the colours flow together easier (I use this whenever I want an extra delicate fluffy-cloud sky). It takes FOREVER to dry all the way (well, a few hours at least, lol - not long at all compared to oil paintings!). So after I finish up the sky I'll probably start a new painting while that one dries. Maybe another self-portrait style piece (I took a bunch of webcam photos the other day for references!). We'll see!

Off to paint! You can watch me here!
