I started another oil in my women painting women series about the 1st week of March, as some of these things go I decided to start anew last week not because the piece wasn’t coming out but because of the static quality of the pose which I felt wouldn’t be the right type of piece for this particular work. So I started anew and picked a complicated twisted elaborate piece so… this should be a challenge. I have tried several different ideas for this underwater portrait painting and have revamped it four times before I decided on the direction of each aspect of the piece. Starting a new charcoal of the head study. It will be titled “The Thing With Feathers – Hope” you shall see why it is entitled that as things progress. The oil of this piece I’ve started on a gallery wrapped canvas, Giselle on a 30″ x 36″ linen. Now I hope that this one develops as hoped. So far so good. Wish me luck. .
