Mid-Week Update

As promised here’s the update on the portrait of Linda.

I took a half day from work yesterday and spent about six hours in the studio working. It was a good day.

Theo – Update

This is the big painting that I’m working on now.

The life-size portrait of Theo. I have to apologize for the cropping on this image… the hands really aren’t cut off — I just couldn’t get far enough back to get the entire image in frame with my good lens. I took a couple of pictures with the shorter lens as well but those came out a bit soft so I thought I’d post these for the time being.

Still a long way to go with this one. The detail work on the chair back is making me a little crazy. I’ve got two passes in on the right side of the image, the left side only has one pass so you can see how the painting progresses there.

Still a long way to go with the clothing and the hands and feet have only been blocked in.

I’m pretty happy with how it’s progressing overall though.

Linda – Update

I’ve got three paintings going at the moment. I worked on all of them this weekend… though to be fair I really didn’t do much more than block in the clothing on this one. However I didn’t get around to posting a new picture of it last weekend when I worked on the hair.

I’m hoping to put some more work in on it tomorrow though. It’s about half way through the process at this point.

Hopefully I’ll have another post on Wednesday to show the progress.

Linda – Update

Continuing the process… starting to get a likeness. Still a long way to go though.
