Bye bye buckskin, hello bay

Starting to look like Sydney

Starting to look like Sydney


OK, short and sweet post because…well…it’s late and I’m tired. It’s a relief to see the real colors starting to appear. I’d say another couple of layers and it will be done. Except for waiting for the paint to dry. I like painting on wood a lot, but the drying part is pretty much a nuisance!

PS: the paint looks a lot more mottled in the photo than it really is. Has something to do with the lighting and the texture of the gesso. I’m too pooped to fool around with the camera tonight, so just take my word for it. Thank you…and good night.
