I’ve started this painting over. I realized that I made one of the oldest mistakes. I didn’t draw out the entire painting first. Because of this I lacked a deep understanding of the form for this complex subject. And without that understand I can’t light and color it properly.
Because I’m starting over I decided to commit to this painting for the long haul and take it to a finish digitally and eventually on to the canvas for oil.
You can watch me work on this painting during my life stream.
