Mother in Zion


Here is the first layer of colors in oils. I applied the paint very loosely and tightened up a bit in the face. I will keep the areas surrounding the woman very loose and brushy with lots of texture. It is about 30% done at this point.

I don't know why you have been so hesitant to post this. I love how she emmerges out of the dark. I can see you concentrating your harder edges and details on the lit side of her face and let everything else soften and fade to the shadow. Keep going.

It's looking great Anita. My favorite thing I've seen you do thus far.
