Climbing

I started to paint the 'climbing' IF piece from last week. I took the photo with my phone and it came out very dark (sorry!).
I am taking a different approach this time. I switched to watercolor paper, and I am also doing an underpainting, which will slow down the entire process.  I am curious to see how the end product will be different as far as colors etc. 
Thanks to those that visited my new ETSY shop. I have received a few orders and I am very excited! I added a few more items too. Let me know if there's something you'd like to see there that I don't have. I will continue to add more art work as the interest grows.

I will be spending a nice weekend away with my husband.  I am looking forward to the get away since I have been stressing out over too many things lately. It will be a much needed break! I hope you have a great weekend too!

I think this is going to be great. It has a nice composition with a lot of interest. Underpainting is smart choice for deciding values and shapes early on.

Ooh! Ok, not being a painter, I have no idea what underpainting is, but it looks complex and awesome. Can't wait to see it all completed. Hope you're having just the BEST weekend evar!
