Long Weekend Update

One of the best parts of a long weekend is that it often means I get extra studio time.

Got two session in on this one this weekend. Worked some more on the face the first day and finally got around to filling in the clothing during the second session.

Here’s the view after the first session:

Now that everything has an initial pass done, it’s all about seeing how far I can push the image.

New Painting

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.
