I spent four hours this afternoon painting, finished the test portrait for Diana, and worked on two other paintings, a Celtic knotwork piece and a still life.
Complete Contentment – WIP8
5″x7″ Masonite board
For this layer I added orange shading on the cat’s knot work.

Samhain Candles – WIP3
11″x14″ oil paint on canvas board
I finally purchased some warm hue black (lamp black) and used it to darken the shading in the background. I did not make any other changes, but the previous WIP was overall a bit darker than the actual painting.
I am now happy with the background, and in the next sitting will move on to the still life objects.
