I’m still working on my bigger project, ‘Love’s Sacrifice’ although I’ve been struggling with my health in the last two weeks as well so I’ve only done about 2 hours of painting in that time. I’ve completed the background, laid in some basic hair and begun to add the final colour to the body on the right hand side. I’ve not allowed myself to extend a project beyond a week or two before and I am finding it’s lovely to take things at a more relaxed pace. Anyway, this isn’t a finished picture, but here’s where it’s at at the moment…
My plans now are
- to complete the body colour, adding a small soft reflected highlight on the right and the main direct highlighting on the left,
- to finish the hair properly and then
- to add the crown of thorns and the marks from him being scourged by the soldiers.
