Pushing space deeper into the picture plane.

 Music for this session: Peter Gabriel

This weekend I organized a 5 hour photo shoot. My friend Shaun Roberts and several others helped and I got some pretty amazing reference. The photos look like crazy steampunk Carravagio paintings.
Here is Toni shooting Alex.
Using glazes to unify the underlying colors. Using glazes to push back the space. Using glazes to make gradations of light. I have gotten this painting about 60% done and it took three weeks. At that pace I will not get enough done to make all my deadlines! #@$%!

I also used the extra paint to cover up some old figure studies. I like the half-glazed and dripping effect.
