Slowly but surely ....

It's not going very fast, this painting that I'm working on, but I managed to paint another face today. That leaves 4 more to go, and then the birds and the bodies .... But I enjoy working a little bit here, a little bit there. Time is limited lately, and I like to have something that I can work on in between.

Still not sure what to do with the white. I'll leave it like this for now ...

I also started the first layer of the second week of Summer of Color. Colours this week are Dark Teal and Coral, and a smudge of bright White. Here's what I have now:

Still some work to do, that's obvious .. ;-)

Thanks so much for leaving all your wonderful comments on my previous posts. I really appreciate this ♥ I'll be back on Friday for the Paint Party, and hopefully the finished canvas for Summer of Color. Have a great day!


  1. So far so great on both of them. I too am finding I like working on the details little by little.
    Have a very nice day today

  2. Nice progress on your painting, she has a sassy expression. xox

  3. I love the top one with the white background. Do you need to do anything with the white? It looks finished to me. :)

    1. not really, but it looks so white ... ;-) Not used to that at all, being a colourlover. But I might leave it like this for this painting ...

  4. I'm still loving the white space. Hope you keep it.
