Back At It!

SKETCHING DAILY:


























TAKING CARE OF OLD BUSINESS

Finished What I Started in 2014. (About time)!  It was a long haul interrupted by my own timidness and a few health issues.  Seen in this translation, I see a spot of flesh is missing.  I won't say where. And I won't be showing you this again.  I'm sick of it!   I have titled it ironically:  A Kodak Moment.








Next on The Easel to finish:  Ruby.  The dishes and utensils need washing.







PREPPING TO BEGIN AGAIN:

Reference for new Painting has been graphed, canvas is prepared and ready for action--nothing more vigorous than scumbling.  Venetian Method it will be.  I do like the calmness of working slowly and deliberately.  (The stripes in the photo were a gift from my printer, Fritz).

    1. It's a strong painting, but not a successful one. I don't think it was Fauve enough. I could not shake off my close relationship with the models enough to completely shake off using natural colors. I do think I did capture the garishness of the photograph I took unthinkingly using a flash. For better or worse, I did get likenesses only a mother could love.
