Going my way...

Yesterday I put the color layer on the finally-dry grisaille I had painted last week. It was actually fun to do a painting this way. Once I had the tonal values and shapes in place, the color was a piece of cake! But I don't like the double drying time. I am impatient.... which is really silly for me to admit, as I am a tapestry weaver! But one of the reasons I paint, in addition to weaving, is that I like the immediacy of painting, in contrast with the slowing down of life that weaving requires.

Anyway, "Going My Way" is 8x10" oil on canvas.
