Here’s a sequence of images from today’s session. It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to work on this, so I tried to cover a lot of ground today.
I’m concentrating on ‘flesh’ areas today.
Looking at the photo, I’m thinking that’s something is not right with the mouth. I’ve discovered that looking at a photo of the painting in progress side-by-side with the original photo on a computer screen helps uncover problems in the painting. I’ll do that to help troubleshoot the mouth issue I think I’m seeing.
Posting a painting in progress in this manner is something of a ‘high wire’ act. I’m assuming that the work will turn out well (what artist doesn’t think that when starting a new piece?). But it could turn out a misfire . . . . I’m interested to see if the blog process contributes to the success of the piece. Stay tuned.
