Day Four or Five, I’m Losing Track..

January 18, 2012 § 7 Comments


I thought I wasn’t going to do full color, but it seems to be headed that way.  Or maybe 80% full color.  I plan to do the meat in hyper-color to really make it grab you. 

Today I worked the area around the pitcher.


At a certain point I am going to stop sharing the progress in order to make the unveiling party more exciting.  You will all get an invite.

      Thanks Anna Maria, I’ve been excessively busy – this painting is now finished, and I’m working on the the next in the series – painting a bear skeleton for the next piece! Anyway, I want to build sufficient anticipation for the series, so I’m holding the finished piece until the show opens. : )

    I meant: I hope all is well…

  • […] will all be painted in grisaille, heightening the red and gold of the meat.  I have finished the previous painting for Smithfields, although I’m not showing them publicly until they’re all assembled in the […]
