Ok so I finally started working on the "big" canvas. A tip for those of you, who (like me) sometimes become convinced that this is in fact the very last canvas that you can ever buy, just start working on it! I was sitting there wading through reference pictures and going through ideas (this has been going on for days) when it hit me that I could get into my car and get another canvas just like this one and do another painting. Stunning revelation! It seems so silly but it immediately made me relax. Hence the actual progress.
I'm not sure if you can tell by my shadowy outlines what I'm up to yet. Can you guess?
Happy Fourth of July! Enjoy the fireworks.
