You need hands...

Blocked in the upper hand and then started on the lower one tonight. They'll be lots of tweaking to do on the upper one, it really wants the light shining off it to make it standout from the tiles...and currently it's not doing that...:)

I'm starting to mull over some ideas for the next picture... I want to try and play with more acute angles when viewing the figure, while pushing the pose further from "the norm". I like the way the location of the bath is working in this picture, it's got a nice surreal feel, so the setting and events are also going to be key...One idea, is to try and paint a musician...I was wondering how I might depict that trance like state music can take you to...I need to chew on it all a bit more...Will post more thoughts/ramblings soon :)

This painting is shaping up to be something truly special. I'm fascinated in watching the 'underpainting' develop. Looking forward to the next installment!!

Cheers Sue :)

Again, haven't done as much to it this week as I would have liked...My day job keeps getting in the way, in one way or another...

Still I have managed to take some photos for the musician picture I mentioned in the post. As soon as I get some sketches for that done I'll post them :)
