Here's a quick pic or two to show you the colour of the board I'm working on:
The blue tape is holding it to the wooden board, while the white tape is just masking. In the photo on the left, you can see the grey colour of the board next to the white tape. There's no surprise that I'm working on grey, since it's my favourite colour. You can also see how my overhead lights only work sometimes, so half the time I'm working only by lamplight. Hoorah!
The second photo shows how the background of my new piece turned out - a bit of blue and orange splattery, not that it looks like much yet!
Yep. This artwork is finally finished. The third time around I got it right (round one and two were on dodgy surfaces, in my quest to find the perfect archival board).
She's about 45 x 60cm. Acrylic and coloured pencil on museum board. I think she'll be called Timekeeper.
I only had such short bursts of time all over the place to work on the piece (you know, when by the time you get into the drawing, your time's up?), so I have no idea how long it took me in total. I'd rather not know, really! But, the first piece always takes me the longest, then I get into the swing of things, and I can charge through the rest. As much as I am capable of charging anyway. A moderate trot, maybe?
