What's the nicest thing about working in the gallery?  It's meeting the people that come through the door, I already met lots of new people since I started doing this a couple of weeks ago.  Today was really busy right from when the doors were first opened. 
I didn't get very much done today, only managing to put another layer on the one side.  Some people see other things in this painting that I haven't.  Some see a footballer with his arm outstretched, others see a profile and others see the continent of Africa (or America it was one or the other).  I think that's brilliant I like it when that happens.  Hope you all had a good day today, it's been a very hot one here.

I was wondering if I was coming to end of painting eggs as this one is all smashed, dont think so though because I love them.  Take a look at an eggshell it's beautiful.  This is still the underpainting and is only the two colours, raw umber and titanium white.  I am building up the depth first and when it is finished it will be blue as it is a duckegg.  Also the contents will be spilling around it..  Dont forget to like my facebook page as I am giving a painting away on there.

This painting is taking forever, mainly because of it's drying time.  I have used titanium beige on the face and it's really thick.  In fact I squeezed it straight out of the tube and on to the canvas.  I have also put another layer of the green on and edged the black in white to give it the appearance of coming away from the wall.  The numbers will not go on until the very last but they will be there albeit falling all over the place.  The only other thing I did today was paint a canvas white, why?  Sheer frustration again!
