I recently started 20 new paintings - many of them the long or tall size. The plan was to get the preliminary stuff out of the way so that I could take advantage of a two day "Fall Break"! I did OK. I have 10 framed, 6 ready to frame and four that need one more color layer. Below are most of the paintings in the first stage - plastered and textured.
Below I have the first color layer (out of three) applied and manipulated.
