"The Art of Painting" . . . However, as I developed more of the painting it became apparent that it did not fit the rest of the painting stylistically and needed to be handled with a higher degree of specificity. So, I scraped down, redrew the head and started again . . .
This next painting is titled "The Voyage". It measures 20"x30" and is also oil on linen.
"The Art of Painting" and unlike the portrait in "Waylay" was changed very little to fit into the larger context of the scene (I darkened the form as it turns into the shadow edges around the cheeks). *BTW, I have no idea why Blogger is screwing this image up. It turns it sideways when you enlarge and cannot find anything in the code to explain it. If you have an insight regarding this, let me know.
