    OK so I thought I would show what I'm up to

    Progress is slow as I have a heating problem plus I'm in no hurry to finish this eye in record time I really am enjoying the process

    I'm Not aloud to going to detail or show how things are done (rules of the course)

    so the board is G4
    Ink/paint is liquitex
    also used is clear medium to bind the paint when it's over diluted. I must admit I've never owned so many erasers. Also I'm getting quite good a cutting paper shields

    I know Marissa is changing her techniques but I can see what you are doing so no need to explain what or how you do it :) your progress is real good just watch your values and dont go to dark to soon

    I can't believe where the time has gone. also most three weeks since I last did any painting. Well that's not quite true I'm in my studio at least twice a week but it's been that cold in there that I've not done any painting plus with a death in the family I've not been able really to consecrate. Also we had a small scare with the wife's last scan but after two or three week a letter arrived from the Hospital with good new's.

    anyway with one thing or the other life has got in the way But I now find my self sitting in at the easel thinking about doing other things and going every thing other than painting maybe I'm bored with the eye as everything is just a uphill struggle but on the plus side I'm still plugging/chipping away at it.

    so progress is slow and here is my latest update

    20190216_100844.jpg

    for instance the wife is in bed as she's not to good today and I'm in the studio BUT I've fitted a new work top and done a little bit of painting today instead of being sat at my easel 100% of the time. I'm finding other stuff to do but I don't know why ??

    Studio is looking really quite nice if I don't say so myself and I love being in there so peaceful

    O'thanks Basepaint
    I think as I have no deadline/no rush to finish my eye I'm finding my self just wondering around my studio like a headless chicken but every time I do some painting I am making progress as every stage brings new problems even new materials. that I need to address if that makes any sense at all. I've learnt so much on this painting it's unreal how ill-prepared I was.

    Water means control as Marissa say's

    Mine looks like that maybe once a year lol and you need a bigger coffee cup James !

    You are doing a great job on the eye, slow and steady and dont be so hard on yourself for not painting, having a loved one who is not well will always take priority with your heart, even if you have the time to sit and paint you'll always be thinking of other things
