progress on the 4x4's

many thanks to the twitter followers who not only kept me on track with these ones but spurred me on to doing better than i otherwise would of with out their help

im terrible at the whole motivation thing

but when i do eventually start painting

i just pick and pick and pick

trying to get as much detail in as i can
and never know when to stop

so all these are down to my twitter followers

with many, many thanks for their assistance

this ones for a good cause

and its only 4x4 inches arrrgh
(grabbing my glasses)

this is it so far...

(sorta kinda after two days messing with and repairing it)

i got to this stage on the first day

but then a little mishap involving accidentally grabbing a white spray can instead of the clear seal left me with roughly about half the canvas whited out


ohhh well these things happen

and soooooo
after the echoes of my screams of NOOOoooooo had faded
i frantically attacked it judiciously
with clear spray and cotton rags

in an attempt to repair


managed it

a little bit more work
a little more detail
and carefully examination of the clear seal spray
and i got this far
