Once again, I had painted this one in my head, even knowing the colors I would be using! This is a half sheet and there are lots and lots of lines, so I wanted to keep the colors very simple.
For some reason, lately I have been painting like a typewriter!!!  From left to right, from top to bottom,  Have no idea why!
But it seems to be working well for me!  On this painting, I was able to go back to areas painted in the same painting session; due to the small areas they dried quickly. 

Once again, many hours and days of painting; I really do mean to keep track of the time spent, but I almost always forget once I sit down to paint – after all, it’s painting time, not book work time!

Deb, your marathon of painting is really paying off! This is truly a wonderful work, and I look forward to seeing the completed work.

I am so glad I get to enjoy this one coming together without having to paint it - it would drive me nuts! ha ha Looking so good, Deb :)

Carol Blackburn said...

Progressing nicely, Deb. I've yet to try anything this complicated.

Christiane Kingsley said...

Oh, I really like this painting! You will have many hours of painting pleasure working on it, I'm sure - it's a bit like a puzzle, I would think.

Kathryn - Glad you are enjoying this.
Rhonda - now, that would be a short drive! (Ha, ha!)
Carol - this is way more complicated than I usually paint, but I'm enjoying it.
Christiane - yes, MANY hours! And you are right, it is sort of like a puzzle - as it all comes together.
