Leaving the paint to dry…

The raw umber used in this piece, (a versatile colour,) is dry, but the titanium white, (which I had to use in places,) takes a good bit longer.

In the meantime there is always other outstanding stuff to be done. For instance, today I mixed up some mortar and laid a load of cut concrete blocks. Started early, with the sun, and luckily got finished before the rain!

And I need to stretch and prime some canvases.


And of course there is always reading and research to be done.

A woman friend called round and looked at the painting and said the girl has a very pretty face. I agreed and remarked that she also has a pretty amazing body and that she is a pretty good actor/actress even if the parts she plays are somewhat stereotypical and cliched.
