These two photos are the beginning of a new canvas I have been working on for some time now..
The style is not my usual realistic madness that I love doing but a looser contemporary look and feel. I normally don't sketch anything out and I don't usually have this coloring as an under-paint. But, I must say I like the challenge of making so many changes while I am painting as I am usually so in control so this is a nice departure from the norm. I am much further along with the painting, but I want to hopefully get some curiosity going. This painting is on canvas, it's size is 36x40 in height... I need some time to study this one so for a time it's back to my 6x6" oils on wood.
