The look funny out of sequence like this but I decided that might be the best way to work on this fast without surrendering technique. I am going to work on them on opposite sessions to allow them time to dry individually.
I am loving the colors emerging on the mantle and the drum but the short and his face are looking a little flat. oh well, thats to be expected at this stage. further highlights and things should see this evolving well.
Its funny what a difference a proper groundwork makes, well, that and feeling inspired about your subject.. having laid the groundwork in the tonal layers I can really see this painting evolving well and I can plan my further layers easier.

Yeah I love Queer Eye too…that’s not a bad idea with the wire. I suppose you would just peg the paper etc to the wire somehow or does it actually sit flat against the wall so you can put the photos under it? Btw – this is Jasmine from Art Forum & Blogcharm – what happened to your Blogcharm?
Hi Jasmine, I moved! WP is much better, I was having some difficulties with the API and compatibility with my mac.
They actually used bulldog clips which was really cool, The wire sat out from the wall from big screw eyes and they hooked bulldog clips on it to hang anything.. I really need to organize my studio better. ah well, when I have money!
