Been a while....

since I've posted on here.
But I now have a few painting projects on the go again, and so I've got something to share rather than random wittering.
Its the Eynsham Art Groups 40th Anniversary this year and there is an exhibition to coincide with it, so I have reworked a nude I started some time ago and I'm in the process of changing it beyond recognition. I have a week to finish it - so a few late nights coming up I think.
The painting itself is quite big (60 x 90) and I've used acrylics (quicker drying time than oil) and have just started putting on some gold leaf highlights. When the size has set, I'll overpaint parts of the gold and see what it looks like.
