This is an extract from a painting I was painting a short time ago. It is about 30 hours in - so still quite a way to go, it was particularly interesting to make as the person I was making the portrait of is a great piano player and bread baker - I was diligent getting the nodes right in parts of the painting, but cheated in others ... The little monkey represents the creative process.
In the final painting, dimensions, shadows and colour lines have been added, the choir is more visible, and depth has been added. Tablecloth has gone from yellow to sunset and I have added Gold and Silver final touches - unfortunately, they are not easy to see.
