I have just a few details and touch-ups but it’s so so so close to being done! Finally.
What a difference the final glaze of skin colour makes!
Blue Sari Fabric Study, 75 x 100cm, oil on canvas, 2018
This painting (and others like it) will be shown in the West Seattle Art Walk at Glow Natural Health for the second Thursday of July, August, and September.
WIP: colour study for skin in the moonlight underway…
WIP: I’m going to have some sari fabric studies up at my friend’s business for the West Seattle Art Walk next month. Most of the fabric studies I have done are small, so I’m working on a bigger piece to help fill the walls. Once this is dry, I’ll paint the pattern.
I had a great photo shoot with the lovely Patrick Daniels last night for a painting that I’ve been thinking a lot about for nearly nine months. It’s time to give birth to this thing!
Wow. I really thought that I would have had finished this painting by now, but the migraines are really holding me back. I pushed through a migraine and got a little grisaille done on this figure.
I was really looking forward to painting this vest! I don’t know why, but some things are more fun to paint than others.
WIP: Just burnt umber and walnut oil on gold leaf so far…
I had to figure out how to paint shag carpeting in an underpainting today and it was actually rather tricky. It took me a long time, with many starts and restarts, and near the end it occurred to me that no Old Master had to figure out how to paint shag carpeting! I was feeling pretty damn good about it, until I remembered that they figured out to paint skin. I think I’ll stop patting myself on the back now.
