A Mental Recess With Art?

I enjoy my painting group. It becomes a family of sorts. We struggle together and watch each other develop. We share challenges and successes. We work intensely and we relax during the breaks long enough to chat a bit. We have our good days and we have our low days. Most of all, we have a mutual love for painting.

I have a new work in progress to share with you. I am painting this piece from the light side of the studio. I brought a 24×18 canvas board to work on and chose a full figure pose.

The color block-in has been completed and I am ready for drawing corrections to be done in the next session.

I am including a close up to show the level of detail accomplished at this point. I like the light and will focus on that in the coming work.

So I look forward to the next session. It is a mental recess from all other things that engage me the rest of the time, a brief vacation of sorts.
