Recovery: Finished

As I finish with another long term painting I reflect on what I’ve learned.

Recovery: Session 15

This session I worked on the back of the figure. I’m not 100% sure if this is the last that I will adjust the form of the back of the figure.

Recovery: Session 14

I focused fully on painting the details of the hand for this session. Hands are so complex they take all my focus.

Recovery: Session 13

Today I worked on the forearm, a rather confusing area of the body.

Recovery: Session 12

The romantic notion that all art is done when the artist is passionate is false. Frequently passion is generated through the act, we just need to start.

Recovery: Session 11

Super busy day today and I barely got anything accomplished on this painting. Just a half an hour of work on it.

Recovery: Session 10

I normally stay away from using black but today I made an exception.

Recovery: Session 9

Trying to paint a solid looking structure covered in hair is quite interesting.

Recovery: Session 8

With this session I’ve taken care of the foot and leg in shadow, working from left to right over the figure.

Recovery: Session 7

I’m second guessing myself on this approach after spending two hours blocking in the rest of the figure.

Recovery: Session 6

A very short session today with some focus only on shadow areas.

Recovery: Session 5

I may be working on this painting for longer than normal.

Recovery: Session 4

I started on the foot but will have to redo it in the future.

Recovery: Session 3

I chose to go with a much more warm background this time around, normally I would cool it off to separate the figure more.

Recovery: Session 2

I’ve finished the drawing with this session and will be starting the background on the next session.

Recovery: Session 1

I felt the pose of this figure quite fitting with my current situation.
