"REcreation" - 15

and the foreground of "REcreation", my imaginary landscape, is essentially done - now for the background, that vista of the artist figure described by her friend - the 're-creation'...

"REcreation" - 12

the cold has set me back at least a week, but keep plodding on - getting the courtyard almost done, and the figure shadows more or less correctly in, just the top of the yard to do and the grass yard itself, along with the figures... and a couple of slim trees to do, one for the rock garden and another for the inverse corner before the figures, coming up from below, which also means a sliver of the landscape below...

THEN can get on with the grisaille background, the view being sketched by the artist as the other describes it - the 're-creation'..

"REcreation" - 10

the process of layering in the grass glazes - emerald green, sap green, olive green, red earth, light green, processed yellow, dark green... the back edge having the most layers...

now to get on with glazing colors over the rest of the foreground...
