Big new batch of paintings on the way

Today I got started with a big new batch of paintings... nine of them to be exact. Having done the drawings, I was able to tear right into the underpainting phase, and completed four. Why can't all my days be this productive??? I'm pretty excited about these new pieces, and posted images of two of the underpaintings, just to whet your appetites.

With any luck I'll be able to wrap up the underpaintings by the end of the week. With even more luck, one or two will be dry on monday, so I could possibly start getting finished pieces from this group early next week. Can't wait. Oh, I'm also documenting the progress of each of these, so there will be movies when done... stay tuned!
