Jack - when I want to paint over a painting I'm not happy with, I scrub the paint off in warm water with soap and a scrub brush. Could you do this with this panel? No need to sand, and a faint image is left that you could use to build upon.

Thanks again Sofie I might try that.
Anyway up and running again. Different panel but following the same routine. I'm determined to make a good job of this cos' the photographer Megan Hancock was kind enough to let me use her photo which I think is beautiful. Got to do justice to one of life's beautiful moments.
Her photographic work can be seen on Ephotozine

Shhh! Don't tell a soul. Progress at last. Reasonably satisfied. Am tiptoeing around the studio just in case a sudden noise makes everything go wrong. Just over two hours today.
I want to achieve that blue almost translucent quality of the skin. Glazing. Possibly.
Anyway here is where it is up to -

This one is coming along very well. And your quiet painting is paying off, the baby is still sleeping!

I'm quite excited about this one. All I've got to do is take it easy and not move in again too soon. I've been in touch with the photographer and learned that Mila, the baby, was nine days old when photo taken. Possible change of title.

Thank you all. It's now slow going. It's so easy to slip up. I wasted time painting a background of a window curtains and wallpaper. 'Yuk'. I've decided that a painting like this requires no distraction from the main theme, namely mother and child. The background has now been painted out, another lesson learned? No! I've made the same mistake before. I know that the rule is to compose your work first and stick to it. But I find that difficult cos' at times the painting takes over and kind of makes decisions of it's own volition. Strange

I definitely prefer it without any background distractions. It's coming along great - I can see the love.
