Scraping Away

I painted, scraped down and then have just started to put paint back into this canvas. I hope the weather holds for another go at this on Monday.

One More Time

I went back to the scene of the painting I did 2 weeks ago, with the plan to repaint it, switching warm and cool colors. The banana plants were gone, replaced by fall mums. Not the effect I was looking for. I recreated them from a quick look at a few banana plants left in a nearby bed and my memory.

Drawing Fencers

I might as well have been trying to draw frogs catching flies. The fencers were moving pretty slowly and then blades clashed faster than I could see. I had to catch several fencers in motion to get one quick drawing done. It was interesting to try to work out the proportions of the body when the legs are in lunging position.
