Starting to get in some of the local color … mostly focused on the edges at this point.
Started this one a couple weeks back but haven’t had as much time to work on it as I would have liked. I’ve put in three real sessions or so at this point. This is a quasi dead-layer — I’m painting the first chromatic bits into a sap green and alizarine couche.
Image is cropped a bit and there’s a long, long way to go yet but I think you get a sense of what it could be.
A few months back we decided it was time to move to solar power. It’s starting to become a reality now. The new panels are mostly installed and we’re waiting for some electrical work to be completed. Once that’s done we’ll have to have the local utility install a net-metering device and we’ll be able to start generating our own power.

Continuing to work on this portrait of Freyja. Trying to find the balance between the softness of the fur without losing the hardness of the underlying structure.
