I’m continuing the same painting as yesterday but larger, and from photo reference to start.

The plan is to have a really good monochrome start done on this painting from photo before we meet again this Saturday with the model for the same pose.

I think I’m going to use color for this painting and it may take many sessions to complete. I’m almost certain that I won’t be able to finish it during the life drawing session next weekend.

It will be nice to see how much a from life reference will effect one of these long term paintings.
