I love your christmas tree with those cool blues against that green mass. I would consider it a keeper.
I have the cast at home. The royal museums in Brussels still have their cast atelier with all the casts they used to share with the louvre and other european museums. its totally free and heaven for cast lovers :-) I only got the eye because they had that one on display but you can order any cast they have. They have hundreds and you can choose from 5 or 6 thick catalogues. (I see you have done your part of bargue drawings, I have done 5 or 6 but have not yet started a cast drawings/paintings)
I painted on little cheap canvas boards (10x15 cm and 12x18 cm) I still had laying around. They are absolutely horror to paint on because I started painting on smooth supports the last year and now its quite hard to go back to these very non smooth boards. The painting of today is on a bit of ampersand gesso board I still had laying and I absolutely loved it. Such a difference a support can make.
Thank you very much for joining me on this thread. It would have been very lonely otherwise. I might not get any painting done next week so it will probably be one a week as well but after that I'll try to come back to one a day. I learned so much by doing the same over and over. First paintings were almost 2 hours, than with the tulips about an hour each till today's effort witch was only about 30''.
I reworked today's effort a bit.
