Self Portrait Progress

The race to complete my Royal Academy submission continues albeit slowly! :oD After some trial and error (on my husband's part!) the canvases are now all bolted together securely and are quite sturdy although I think the addition of a vertical baton on the back will definitely make them rock solid. I've now drawn on my outline and am ready to start painting the canvases once they've all been separated again. I seem to have given myself a little tiny face but it's only a guideline so I can fiddle with it as I go along.



I'm setting up home in the dining room temporarily to avoid having to go up and down the stairs to my studio on my crutches too often. I don't think I mentioned previously but I'm working with a magenta, violet and turquiose colour scheme rather like this previous painting:

looking good so far - like the way you have pieced the canvases, works well - as for the colour combination you are going to use - what can I say am sighing with delight :)

Oh I am getting excited about seeing this progress.
I too love the colours you are planning to use.

Loving what you've done so far, and the proposed colours. Can hardly wait to see more progress :) x

Oh how cool, your canvases are arranged entirely differently from how I imagined. In my head they were in a grid. That's what I mean by the I say/you see thing!

Happy birthday, and welcome home too :)

You know - I actually like the drawing just as it is...
