It's always an exciting moment to live when you begin to paint in color on grisaille because, after many efforts, time, you begin to see what your painting will become once finished, like with the first pass done on this classic piece.
But it is also pleasant to do the grisaille because you are working for the next pass which will be in color like this pleasant new piece.
In fact, you have understood that whatever I do, I'm happy !! ;-)
