I'm not laughing Mr Weebly.com, it's no joke when you have to start again because it's kicked you out just before you saved it. Anyway back to the new painting, it's oil on canvas again and 12x16" so not massive. I have started the base of the painting in the monochrome colours that I like to use, they are raw umber and titanium white. I use these two because they dry very quickly (especially because they are fast drying oils anyway). I didn't start with a sketch again, it's a waste of time for me because I never follow them anyway. I was going to put the very first stroke down but I forgot and only remembered when I got as far as the first photo below.
