Productive Day

I got a lot done today. I did the underpaintings for three little paintings Steph asked me to do for Malachy's room (they're based on the artwork of Simon Hart.)

I did a couple of warm up sketches for another painting that Steph has asked me to do for her bedroom based on a painting by Nydia Lazano.

And I did the underpainting for a Jesus portrait for the Good Friday show.

This kind of tonal underpainting is new for me but I've been watching Helen Van Wyk videos and she uses them so I thought I'd give it a crack. I found I like it a lot better than the charcoal drawings I was doing before and I don't have to worry about applying a fixative because you do the underpainting in acrylic.

Malachy saw the paintings in your room today and said "CAR" so maybe they will be as big of a hit as kitty's!! I love them already Kim! Thanks!
