Finished the Gator Study painting (on Arches hotpress 140# using granulating colors - it's about 9" x 11"). I will use the textured look of this for the next 1/2 sheet version but still working on the original 1/2 sheet.
I hope you're not too bored and tired of these things. I may be bored and tired of them before I finish the next 1/2 sheet but I've been told that working "in a series" is a good thing for all artists to do - even if they hate it! haha
