Things are moving along smoothly and there's a lot more color on the boards now. My family comes out to the garage and comments on how quickly this is going, but it's not as far along as they may think.
BUT, while it appears that a lot has been accomplished, it is really just an underpainting - the first layer of what will probably be many. I'm getting a sense of color and developing forms before I go back through and build up the details, depth of value, etc.
So, the road ahead is a lot longer than it may appear.
