It's strange working on a small space. I don't particularly like it. I'm also using acrylics on this piece. I don't particularly like that either. The paint is almost dry before I get it off the brush, I have challenges blending it, and for whatever reasons, I just don't think it looks as 'rich' as the oils. Having said that, I really want to become proficient with acrylics ... so I am persevering. I began this painting on Monday ... long way to go.

Today, Nina came to my house, which was lovely. I worked on 'Sunday Afternoon'. I'm happier with the female body, although there are still a few things to be fixed. The male body needs more blocking in .. I will work on that this week.

I've enjoyed visiting all your blogs this week, as I always do. Such talented women. The quality of art which is produced by this small circle, never ceases to amaze me. I know you are all having fun, otherwise we would not be doing any of this. Thanks so much for dropping by. Thanks for leaving such wonderful supportive comments. You truly are my inspiration.
