Under the wave: halfway through

It's taking shape, a couple more sessions and I think it'll be done.

I love staining pigments for this kind of painting where I need superdarks and vibrant colours at the same time, also they let you keep layering forever, the only con is that it's difficult to fade them to white in such a small painting since they are really intrusive pigments, that's why I've been working so slowly up till now until all the light areas were established, usually I prefer to fade those edges as I'm adding paint but this time I'll just have to blur them later.

Anyone wants a minicornetto? I'm taking one, as Ben Affleck said in that commercial because I worth it *yums!*

Dear Teresa,
Beautiful work!!! Very happy to know happy Teresa comes back with a sense of humour. You're right on a track! A bottle of champaign is too early...but a half glass of wineʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ
Cheers, Sadami

Thanks Ann :) I want to finish it this weekend, hope those lights and darks end well defined and keep some beautiful midtones in between
