in progress
oil on doorskin
Wow! What a challenge this one is from Karin Jurick - see ' Sat on it for a week till I decided I couldn't procrastinate any longer so I got down to work and formulated a plan. First of all there was a lot of information in this photograph of the display window of a wig shop - how to simplify? I decided to try black and white with 5 values and am now going to wait for a week till the paint is somewhat dry, to get around the fat over lean rule, and then glaze in a little transparent color to warm it up a bit. I think the biggest problem so far has been trying to photograph the painting without accentuating light reflections and glaring errors!

Ice Caves
enhanced photo
I've been distracted lately by the accounting side of my life as it's year end for many and my adventuring into photography for the purpose of collecting resource material is also consuming much of my time so am getting a little playful with the photos to satisfy my creative side. Back to painting next week hopefully.
