Back to the easel

I got back a few weeks ago from my holiday and am slowly getting back into painting. Having had such a long break from my studio, I feel like a total beginner. I should try to do something easy to ease myself into oil painting but instead am planning to do the portrait of my cat "Ella". I am working from a photograph  and will be painting a grisaille first in order to work out the tonal values. This is going to be a great challenge and I will post the outcome in the next few weeks. Oh yeah, and this is going to be a rather large painting, 100X75cms. I will post as soon as the grisaille is done.
