first layer

When I paint the real work, I am careful and slow and precise and pretty anal.
The alias work is messy & loose & impressionistic.
He likes to tell me that when I get ‘brave’, I might combine the two styles.

I don’t know about that, but I did do this first layer fast & loose.
I have never worked so quickly before.
Part to do with my natural impatience and time restraints, but also because it just felt good.
I felt like I could loosen up some to start with because I am still not positive this will work, it is a bit of an experiment. Using 2 light sources could go horribly wrong and make the front center figure look ‘photoshopped’ in there – which is not cool since I want high realism.
Not to mention it was easier to block in fast with all those dramatic lights on the faces.

So, here is the first layer.
Way looser than I usually do.
I will tighten up and do many more layers, soften edges, deepen shadows, etc.
And I will play with the background – that is not settled at all yet.

All in all, I’m pretty pleased with my progress.
And it was a wonderful week – like being high, I don’t remember it clearly – just that it was fun.
Back to the salt mines tomorrow.
Err….painting cows. Guess I won’t get sympathy for that…

I took this photo in low light & let it be blurry.
It is a trick.
To see if the major shapes work, the composition works, the lighting, etc.
As a bonus, I like this look so much I may have to darken the painting quite a bit.

The realism of the finger pointing woman is incredible - like a photo.
You're wonderfully talented!

Let's talk. It's how we learn about yesterday and comprehend today.

Yes totally agree...coming along nicely. Like how you share the's fascinating to follow along... I am lucky to be able to do a rough sketch & get it close to what I am thinking about...😀

No I think this is going to be a fantastic painting when done.

It's looking wonderful already, though I know it's early days for how fantastic you'll end up doing. You know I've been a big fan of your work since the first time you shared a painting here. I'd never have the money, but would dearly love a nude painting by you.

But more so, ironically, I'd really love one of your cow paintings. But I won't explain that here, only in private, if I had a way to contact you privately. Doubt I could afford one of those either though.

But I'm excited for you, on this one. Looks like it will be great.
