Underpainting in acrylic. 24x30" - about 30 minutes in the studio.
There's something to be said for waiting a long time to be able to paint - something like a prisoner (innocent of course) finally released to run through an open field. Boy that felt good. Been crazy busy this past week replying to hundreds of emails and packaging an equal number of dvds to post around the world after Robert Genn's letter about my Mastering Color course: http://clicks.robertgenn.com/mastering-colour.php
Absolutely crazy. It's the middle of winter here so the water is freezing but that didn't stop me running down to the beach and throwing myself in the ocean attempting to clear my buzzing head. (Sort of worked - replaced the buzzing with pain for a while). DVD orders and emails are still pouring in today but I just had to give my head another break so got out my acrylics and threw them onto a couple of decent sized canvases with the biggest brush I could find. Works like a treat. Very tempted to continue in this loose vein with them, but they're sort of commissions to swap for my accommodation last month in Queenstown, which makes me tend to stick with my usual style. Great fun though. Will do more of these in my own time.

Got a really fun project underway at the moment. Here's the logo I've designed for it:
Lots of fun - will let you know more about that soon. ;-)
Anyone who's in a rut at the moment, I suggest you get your big brushes out and splash some paint around - good for the soul.
