Grey, White And Black
Of the 14 paintings I've committed myself to this week, 13 have been worked on. I'm very much intimidated by In Case Of Emergency; it's a large piece and I'm trying to make it as photorealistic as possible so that when it hangs on a wall somewhere people will think it's an actual fire extinguisher in a real case. That means, though, that large areas that go from light shadows to darker ones have to be finessed, and I don't always have the patience or the inclination to spend 20 minutes carefully stroking and blending. Anyway, here's where it stands as of today:

Also in the grey/white/black mode, coming down to the finish line on this one:

I think I might finish 5 paintings by the end of the month, barring unforeseen circumstances...Haha, we'll see if i can keep to that plan. There's always some small area that I've overlooked that needs attention.
