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.

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.
Worked some more on this portrait of Freyja. You can still see where the paint is a bit wet on the face. Pretty happy with how it’s coming a long so far not sure how far I’m going to be able to push it but want to find out.
