Sunday to Sunday
Here's what happens in a week to over the start I shared last Sunday. I liked the initial composition enough not to push the figure around so much as I tend to do with my usual starts, so the composition and image look pretty much the same. What is harder to notice is the layers being built over what was a very thin oil sketch that makes it into a painting. My type of painting is almost low relief; building the surface and projecting the forms feels like making sculpture. Still, the image is evolving in minor ways, it is a bit more male now from its somewhat androgynous start, and the owl is certainly fluffier.
