Onward

 Worked multiple areas; laid down a quick wash over the anemic looking sidewalk and street surface; not sure if it helped.

Sanding and Painting

 One more round with the sandpaper, and then another attempt to get the faces right. So far, so good, though still more to do.

Freaking Out

 It's Friday already, and by my count I've got a mere 13 days left to finish 5 paintings. And it's not going well. I have to budget in time for rectifying mistakes; drying time; changes in color or drawing. I am freaking out.

Today I tried to tie up some loose ends on the left side of this painting, and make some decisions about the floor colors.

Bit By Bit

 I keep plugging away at as many pieces as possible these days. I did some background work on three or four of the America series today, but didn't bother to photograph them. Here, though, is one of the larger paintings. There is still much to do.

Moving along— this one is finished!

Monday

Time to get busy. I was able to get two more people to pose for me for the America series, yesterday at my Artomatic volunteer support event, so the day wasn't a waste of time. I'll be posting the newbies soon. Meanwhile, worked today mostly on architecture.

Street Scene Nearly Done

 I worked on this this morning, and all I can see that's left to do is some signage on the left, where that blue kiosk is.

Geneva Takes Shape

 The little pieces from the America series are getting easier to paint.

A Late Start

 I do feel like I'm running out of steam lately. A week off from painting is just what I need; unfortunately, the looming deadlines are quickly approaching.

Anyway, I decided to warm up the brushes by working on something fun today:

Faces, mostly. And some work on the chairs.

Buildings Under Construction

 Spent the afternoon working solely on the buildings; made some decent progress.
