Small bump in the road
Unfortunately Keith Rocco's painting workshop has been postponed due to a few folks dropping out. Keith needed a minimum amount of folks to attend to make it viable and we just managed to have the minimum (I think 4-5 people) before he pulled the plug. I'm going to go on and start painting the first of two projects I had planned to take with me. The painting will be on 12" X 16" Ampersand gessoboard, which is really great stuff. This will also be my first oil painting. The subject will be a North Carolina Provincial soldier from the 1750's. Here is the in progress "cartoon" or tonal painting done in acrylics. I also plan to put in a full background with possibly a few smaller figures.
I'm also in the process of putting together some material for the first projects that will appear on my sculpting blog.
