Here is a cell phone shot of today's progress. It is progressing more nicely than this photo shows. This is another picture that contains opposing elements. The color scheme is mainly orange and blue, opposites on the color wheel. The brushwork is both soft and crisp. I am not sure if it shows here, but I am enjoying this process.

I am still fussing over the details in Rein In. It's mostly about the tack, I want to get it right. I've been working large most of the year. It is liberating to use big brushes and stand way back from the easel while I am working. The problem with working large is when you make a mistake, such as a color or value problem, it's that much more difficult to correct it. Students, that is why we make a loose study before moving to the final version.

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted anything
I'm working on a few illustration jobs so I guess that might factor into my social media absence
I reworked an old picture today
I'm starting to be at peace with how it turned out
Hopefully I'll begin some new work next week
