What's on my easel

Well, it doesn't look like much yet. But I'm hoping this will be my entry in the DPW Shadows Challenge. It's a simple composition on a 6 x 6 panel, but this is all I have time for this week. I couldn't let a challenge on shadows pass me by!  

I haven't been working on any long term projects. I'm loving painting alla prima. If it isn't done on the second day, I scrap it or wipe it. So I don't have anything on my easel for that long. I do like seeing what everyone is working on though. And seeing the "in progress" version is interesting.


  1. This is going to be perfect for the challenge! Looking forward to seeing it finished. :-)

  2. I am looking forward to seeing it finished also.

    Love the colors in the shadows...so far!

  3. I hear that! I'm way too impatient and have too little time for a lot of pre-planning and underpainting, although I appreciate the benefits. I love the wet on wet process too! The painting looks good Cathy - nice teaser to make me want to watch the rest of the process. Are you a right to left painter?


Thanks for the comment!
