March 11 work in progress

The paintings are coming along a good pace, but I have six more full (and by that I mean VERY FULL) days of painting ahead of me. Sigh. I really prefer drawing and engraving. It was the speed factor that made me decide to do paintings for the gallery show. They're pretty cute though, I must say! :-)

My favorite paintbrush has seen better days. I have a huge collection of paint brushes. I use about 5 of them consistently. I can see that I'm going to be in the market for a replacement. Hopefully it'll get me through the rest of the chicken paintings though!

And I finally got some time this evening to work on the drawing. The greenish areas in the tail... that's how black feathers start out. Looks weird huh!

Cripes I gotta go to bed! Sooooo much to do tomorrow.

Okay, so if you lose your favorite brush, then does that mean you will need to paint with feathers?!
