I havenâ€™t posted a new picture in a while, so I thought that Iâ€™d show everyone what I did over the break. I donâ€™t know how different it looks to the casual observer, I stare at the painting for several hours a day so you can imagine that I have a different view on how much has changed from day to day. What I can say is that the underpainting is (nearly) complete. I may move on to a full palette on the next work day, or perhaps Iâ€™ll give the faces one more pass before I do that. Alekâ€™s face in particular could use another pass. I am very anxious to move on however. It would be nice to have the drawing locked down before dealing with the subtleties of color, but I suppose there is always opportunity to improve the drawing. Oh, and I have a critique with Eric Fischl on Tuesday. Wish me luckâ€¦
I’ll try to write a catch-all post to talk about some of the other things going on in NYC as well. Cheers.
