A few days ago the print arrived. It’s a copy of the portrait of Bogart in pencil which I drew some time ago. You can view two of the photos I took of the original mounted drawing and the print next to it.
So I have blocked in first layer of the background and worked quite a lot on the cameraman. Next stage will be to paint the next layer of the horses in the foreground. That will take some time to do since it’s a large painting, but I will do my best to complete stage four next week. This photo is not a good representation of the actual colors of the painting, the lighting conditions here in the studio are not the best at the moment.
It has been quite some time ago I posted any news on the huge oil painting I’m currently working on. It’s because I drew the portrait in pencil of Bogart in between and after that my daughter got sick. She was home for over a week and that was pretty frustrating, surely it’s easier when people don’t have any children when they try to run a business at home :). Well, nothing to do about those things… but in Monday I finally started to paint the oil painting again. It was a long time ago I blocked in the entire canvas with a thin warm color, so it really had some time to dry completely.
After that, I painted all outlines once again and blocked in the horses with the first layer of paint. Tomorrow I will block in the background and that will be fun, so I can’t wait!
