After a week of crashed laptops and lightning-stricken internet towers, I am back!
The two portraits I've been working on are progressing, albeit slowly.
I also painted a couple of little paintings (to be scanned) and worked out the composition for the group portrait.
And some time last weekend, I had Christmas again: my order of artist supplies came in from Blick. A huge 18x24 Arches block (I'm trying to think bigger!), a couple sheets of Yupo to finally try, a big fat ultramarine tube (because I'm always out of my blues), a Lama Li watercolor sketchbook (niiiiice handmade texture though the sheets feel a bit thin) and a set of Shiva Artist's Paintstik Oil Colors. I am artistically drooling all over everything :) Now I just need a little me-time to convert my excitement into some art! :)
