New WIP

No Hobbit update this week, sorry, but I have 3 little paintings in line and to be honest, it feels grrrrreat to hold a brush again, I'd missed those relaxing hours one on one with the paint and paper, feels like forever since last time I painted something!

The first one is going to be called Under the Wave and looks like this so far, I'd love to say that it's just a first wash but nope, more like some hours of work O_O, anyway I'm completely excited about painting this one because it's been on my to-do list for a couple of years (ok, more like 4), it was going to be one of a couple, the other one was Over the Wave and this one of course couldn't be but Under the Wave, have you ever had a title decided so long before actually painting the work? :P

Ok, it's an early stage and it's flowing quite easily so far so there isn't any secret or decission-making to share about this step. I'm using a very limited palette of 4 colors, the same used for the other painting, it has made me rethink about the importance or not of documenting your works, a.k.a. should I once and for all keep a decent record of my works instead of random swatches and photos of the used palette when I remember to do it?

Here's over the wave, the current twin gotta look at least as good so cross all your fingers for me ^_^.

So tickled to see you painting!!! This will be a gorgeous match to the other painting.

This is looking so good!! And that previous one was just fabulous so I know this one will be, too. If this is a SWAP painting, your partner is in for a real treat.

Your wave is spectacular. I'm not a swimmer, so got a feeling of drowning, that's how lifelike it is! You have set yourself a tough challenge with Under the Wave, can't wait to see it! I usually have a title in mind early on, sometimes before I start! Then, other times, can't think of a darn thing. And, guess what - the paintings I name early on usually turn out the best!

I'm happy to see you back to painting! It does feel SO good doesn't it? And WOW are those paintings beautiful or what?! I am very excited to see you finish under the wave, it's gonna be a knockout!

thanks for the cheer Sadami, I'll try my best at this one for sure :)

Pat thanks for the support, cross your fingers

Hi Ann! I'm superexcited to be painting again too :D

Rhonda since it's the last one lets close it with a bang, right?

You too Deb? I'm in good company then, feels comforting somehow to hear you get better results on the ones you name before painting them, maybe it's because we see them more clearly in our minds?

Crystal i hear you, holding a brush again feels sooooo great indeed! :)
