Uranos and Helios is now underpainted. I'm unsure about the results because I had intended to paint this alla-prima and so chose some of the more transparent pigments. For the past two days I've been underpainting the Sue Ryder painting, currently entitled Insecurity Grasping for Freedom. At the moment I'm waiting for the mordant to tack on the gilding for 31st century crucifiction which will, soon, include 24 kt. gold.

There's only about six weeks left of my painting season and I'll get back to music then, and planning for my first solo exhibition which is pencilled in for June 2009 in the Lyceum Theatre, Crewe. I probably won't do any painting in the last quarter of this year.
