Well, here is the first pass on top of an older painting that never made it! It is the "block-in" stage. I am establishing the composition, darks and basic colours. From this point I will develop the whole piece and hopefully finish it within 1 week! I am teaching on Wed. and I have to put together the fall classes' supply lists. I can't believe summer is just about to come to an end...I wait all year for 3 months. Maybe a home in the south? Dreamin' never hurt anyone did it?
