Think this is about 2 hours; had monitor set to stay on 1 hour, after I'd traced and copied from tracing paper to watercolor paper. Using mostly Escoda #8 sable round (and a synthetic fan brush) on a quarter sheet of 200# Curry's CP watercolor paper, with W/N perm. aliz. crimson & perm. sap green (purplish browns), with Winsor green (for greeny blacks), plus gold ochre & transparent yellow. Still a very long way to go (and I'm wondering what to do about the dark water). :)

AND -- thanks to all the WDE-ers who encouraged me to finish my old WDE of St. Catharine's Church -- while showing some work to visitors today, sold it for $40!!!

Always like to hear when the WDEs bring someone financial gain, even though the main purpose is fun!
Keep us posted on this one, you have a good start!

Much congrats on your sale.
Looking forward to seeing the update on the current WDE. Under-drawing takes ages, but all will be worth it I know!

Thanks for the good wishes, folks, and the encouragement to keep on with the current image! Now I get to see what everyone else did this weekend.

It's true, Stonewhiteclown, I never did rescan the finished painting -- sorry. Long-winded explanation: I'm still battling the "black-hat hacker" so I didn't want to scan the painting (in 2 pieces) on the online PC and transfer the pieces to the offline PC to stitch them together, in case a virus was lurking on the online PC. These days I stick to eighth sheets for WDEs so I can scan them in one piece, so I can post them from the same PC.

But, I'm developing a new strategy for keeping the online PC safe for much longer periods of time, so perhaps it will be worthwhile to install PhotoShop on the online PC pretty soon. Keep fingers crossed!

"Black-hat hacker?"

May I suggest....
Zone Alarm (firewall free for home use) www.zonealarm.com
AVG virus detector http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_index.php

Okay, I believe it was good enough :)

Long-winded explanation: I'm still battling the "black-hat hacker"
It came across my mind yesterday - if you have particular hacker bothering you, maybe you could ask your provider to change your IP if you have static one. He'll lost your track hopufully?
