Another progress shot today. I think I’m probably within a half hour or so of finishing this portion of the painting. Then the final bit I intend to paint will take two to three hours and it should be finished.
Today I worked on the fabric, but the shadow it casts on the figure is giving me fits. I need to let this whole thing dry so I can go back and finish that shadow. I also lightened up the background. It used to be pitch black, but then I realized that wouldn’t work with the final piece of the painting, so I lightened it up.
It should be dry by Tuesday or Wednesday and then I’ll get started on the home stretch. I just hope when I’m finished I can get a picture without all the glare sparkles.
This is Day 10 in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge. This is an oil painting on a 12×16″ canvas panel.
