Slowly But Surely....

The Godiva Painting is progressing. Finally, we have some hint of chocolate. Yesterday was not a painting day. It was an incredible look around a community united by one topic. When you get a chance click on that Blog Action Day logo, or go visit some of the commenters posts. They will lead you to others. It is worth your time.

Here, today, we are diving into the paint. The chocolates are beckoning. And there are at least 7 other 22"x 30" watercolors waiting in the wings behind this one. So today will be a brief post. Then I have to get to those "floor plans" for the others, the next part of some pre painting for them. I am thinking if I bundle that activity to one day, well, I 'll be that much closer to getting them underway. It's my own anti poverty program you could say. I have a huge amount of "inventory" to replace and get to market.

Some details of the painting are starting to take shape. It is important to stay large and simple before getting into those, paint the whole of this piece as I go. But now I can zero in. So more chocolate, more specific reflections and the inside of that open box....that's where I am going today. It's raining outside so it's a nice cozy day to splash around in some golds and dive deeper into extending the sepia range. But first I want to say thanks. Thank you for your emails of support. I really appreciate them. And thank you for stopping by, taking time to say a few words and sharing a bit of yourself.

Well Brush? Yes, time to get to work.

What's it like in your part of the world today, rain...cold...sunshine? Are you doing something fun?

Oh, this is really taking shape and looking fabulous. I kept trying to envision some of the images as you layer those colors, and it's coming to life beautifully! Excellent!
