This is the progress so far (minus some work on the arm I’ve done since this last photo.
Basically I’m breaking it down into little alla prima sections this time – inspired by my last study. Originally, I paint with an alla prima style – very loose and not a lot of gritty detail. Lately I’ve become fond of doing some more detailed work, for exercise and practice, but it certainly feels good to get back to my roots and paint like I want to paint (not like I need to.) I will have some new work available on e-bay tonight – and I have classes coming up in July! Learn to paint portraits or learn to draw faces. I have some impressive before and after work from my drawing students I will post sometime here.
I will go into a detailed explanation of the steps I took once I’m finished with the painting. Til then, have a good one.
