Duck! 5x7 at about 50%. About 30 minutes of actual painting time. The gel medium gets a touch streaky if you put too much on at once, until a nice base is built up. Started this guy with a sienna underpainting to determine tone. Adding local colors and more tone here. What will get tricky on this one is the weird way that the light bounces off the background and turns the thin spots in the Duck! (i.e. the neck) to an translucent orange type thing. Hopefully next session I can clean it up and finish it off.

Chip #1, almost finished. It's a little cool, I will warm it up tomorrow. Chips are hard to paint. the more it sits on the paper the more grease is drawn out and the more transparent it is becoming. Very strange. I'm also noticing on the gray background the yellow in the chip is creating complimentary shadows with more and more violets in the shadows and also the yellows are increasing in the outer edges of the board.
More details to come with the blistering of the chip and that should wrap this one up.
