6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord
After I painted the model last Saturday I had about 20 minutes or so remaining. While grabbing another panel I was wavering on what to paint ..... head or foot (yes, foot!). I began with a quick foot sketch, wiped it out and started on the head. This sketch is the same as when I left the studio. Of course, it needs a lot of work to bring it to a better look, but I am going to leave as is. It's amazing what one can learn and do in just a very short time. One year ago I would never have painted this much on the canvas. In 20 minutes I might have achieved a drawing with just lines. So, note to self, progress has been made. :-)
I hope everyone is staying warm and not getting cabin fever! Here in Texas we have ice and after looking at the weather report it will not warm until Friday.
