While the weather isn’t perfect yet it’s cooled off a little here in Texas and I’ve been able to return to my ground level studio to work with oil. Anyway, I’ve been staring at one of my very sub-par works from 2009 for about three years now as it has been hanging upstairs in my living room since completion. That’s right…no one ever purchased it! It wasn’t a horrible work, but was undertaken only months after I finally broke away from years of stenciling….which really slowed my progression as a serious painter and draftsman.
That being said, I was upstairs loafing about and the idea of reworking the piece hit me suddenly. I’d say within five minutes I had lugged the giant canvas down the stairs and was using primer to blot out the face. I’ve put in a handful of painting sessions and it’s already looking much better. Anyway, the piece isn’t finished yet. I still need to work on the mouth area as well as add more layers and tones, but I wanted to share some photos anyway.
Until next time,
