Keeping my digits crossed…

Oil Painting Figure WIP Venus de Milo
meanwhile i have begun to paint my latest work (oil, 24×18)
(which isn’t easy with crossed fingers!)
the design and composition phase was done a couple months ago
sort of simmering on the back burner while i worked on others
and now it’s going from the “values” stage (i.e. light-dark scale)
and moving into color temperature stage (i.e. cool-warm scale)
and then the paint goes on with ease –
well… in theory!
of course i’ll post it when it’s done
