I’m sick at home with a cold this week, so channeling energy that *should* be used for painting with an update here instead. Progress shots are so satisfying. I’ve now moved on from underpainting and getting the big relationships sorted out, to delving in to details with a small brush (hence it looks as though progress has slowed down in the last few images – quite the contrary – it takes a lot of time!).
Only a few weeks to finish this painting – needless to say I think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew!
