This is how the scruffy canvas turned out, and this is the rough sketch for todays painting. I'm really enjoying this method, even if I do seem to be almost making it up as I go along!
At halfway stage, I've blocked in the heavy colours.
Just about finished with the details. This took me all day as I just couldn't leave it alone and had tremendous fun again :D
Just a little more fiddling and then the varnish before it can be hung :D
Meanwhile, a nearly black canvas is beckoning and I'm wondering if I can start a new picture tonight!!!
