Zelda almost done!

Well, I've painted twice today - this morning I've painted the walls in my front room, this afternoon I've painted more of Zelda. 

I've concentrated on finishing the bottom half of the painting - all I need to do there now is the white outline of Link and then the grey wash over all the background to fade the paint out a little.

Tomorrow I'll finish off the top, then finish painting Link. I've still not been able to buy some batteries of my camera, so I'm afraid I've used my iPad again, sorry.

Here it is:

Even more Zelda done

I've been catching up with thei ting - looking after my mum following her knee replacement has taken lots of time, and has given me little time to paint, but I spent some time yesterday and this morning painting. 

It feels so good to paint, but I've had to stop as I'm heading out to a policy forum on disability in an hour or so, and need to get ready.

Anyway, see if you can Ot what I've been doing - I need to apologise for the quality of the photos as I've had to use my iPad as my camera has decided to stop working. I'll have to save up for another one!

I've done most of the pink here:

I've tightened up some of the black outlines here:

Hopefully, I'll be able to paint some more tomorrow :)

Zelda continued

Well, I completely overestimated just how much time looking after my mum would take - she had a total knee replacement 4 weeks ago, and I moved in to look after her, and carried on going to work. Consequently, very little painting got done! I managed to paint on a couple of days, but that's all. 

She's doing really well now, so I moved back home last week and am painting today.

My camera has decided to refuse to save any images, so I've had to use my iPad to post an update, so I'm sorry the photos aren't quite as crisp as I'd like them to be. I thought it would be better to post rather than not!

Here's where I'm up to; the whole image: 

The top half:

The bottom half:

I need to go over some of the black outlining, but I'll probably do that next to last, before I do the grey colour wash. Today I'm going to finish the background, and *maybe*, just maybe start Link.
