I have not posted to my blog in many months. I hope to reverse that trend, and make my blog, once again, the place where I share my latest works, thoughts and process.
The painting above was completed a number of months ago. However due to the heavy paint application in the background, I had to wait before varnishing it and taking a photo. It was painted using the natural morning light.
Below is a thumbnail study. Maybe 3"x4". I always do these preliminary studies to help me evaluate the composition and to decide on the crop and dimentions of the final painting.
