WIP – Lighter Shade of Pale

26 Dec

And so, I was quite unable to sleep. So I go up at 4:10am and painted on this until 6:20 am – then decided I should try to sleep until say 7ish…

Between shuffling Christmas and visitors and cooking –  I am managing to find a few hours each day (early am) to poke away at this. Am liking the way it is shaping up.  The leaves are delightful to paint. I am using compose green for the highlights ( apply and remove quickly at it can dry opaque) and a mixture of green gold and sap for the lighter leaves and sap and prylene for the deeps – with an indigo was once dry.
