Oooh, the end is SO near with this painting and I'm so very excited.
Ok, here is the "before" pic:
And here is the "after" pic:
The changes are very subtle. I did some more work on the eyes, gave Timothy a nose job and fiddled with darkening the black.
I have a good feeling next week will be my last go round with this painting. I just have to fiddle with the eyes a bit more (making the green stitching pop more) and then lay in the whaling to get the look of corduroy.
Next week we'll have a model but I'm not sure I'll be doing that. I'm not a huge fan of life drawing (because I SUCK at it) and I really want to start a new canvas. I'm nearly 100% committed to the idea I have in mind (which should be a nice fast painting--famous last words there!).
Oh yeah, I'm so happy to see "Kitty Up" finished. Here's hoping the whaling turns out well (it's really going to make Timothy pop!).
