I'll add images here as I go along, or you could watch the progress (which will be fairly slow!) on www.Facebook.com/PaintingProgression.
For now, here's the starter. The basic outline of the composition has been agreed upon with the help of a pencil drawing on baking sheet paper, initial colours have been chosen, and the canvas has received two coats of lovely clean white gesso.
Rarin' to go now.
The two coats of gesso make a huge difference to a canvas. It's like a first date ... you're just starting to get to know the creation, and beginning a lovely relationship.
