My new shelving and work space
Entrance to my studio
To work on I chose a piece on wood panel that already had a figure partially painted on it. The figure was from a Michelangelo painting, however, I changed the profile. Surprisingly, the background was still white so I quickly covered up that dreadful white. It's like a blank sheet of paper to a writer.
The next day I began adding more color to the background plus changed the profile a bit and began sketching in a figure on the back of the main figure.
More color added to the background and more sketching in of images on the bottom left.
I have no name for this one yet which is also surprising. A boa constrictor, poison ivy, and other things may be added….I'm not sure. I usually find images on the net or in magazines, cut them out and place them on the painting to get an idea of what it will look like OR I just make them up. This is small for me….26 in x 24 in so adding too much might make it too busy.
