Adding a few details

Firelight #6. Starting to add some detail in the face.
Firelight #6. Starting to add some detail in the face.

I don’t always stop painting to post process but just take a quick picture with my phone and move on, causing several steps in one day. I also must admit I do not devote the whole day to the easel – much as I would love to. Instead, I paint a little and go clean my house a little because itis Saturday and the light is as good for dust bunnies as it is for painting. This is the second sitting and I decided to begin to add a little detail to the face. Not only does this start to settle the real size of the flat shapes, but it helps me relax and plan where it needs to go next. Once the afternoon light forces me to stop feeling guilty about the dusting I haven’t finished I will probably do a third session today and will post progress. I hope you’re having fun watching.
