We had a great day in the studio today, with the Virtues canvas completely sealed with Iron Oxide Red and ready to paint tomorrow after a good night’s drying. Casey did most of the work, seen in the right hand picture. The studio looks and feels remarkable different with this bright orange wall. I can’t wait to get working on the sky and marble to get a feel of how the painting will work.

I also started drawing the Empress, making little progress, but putting down enough to see that this is going to work well. I’ve started drawing in blue, because I can see the colour more clearly from a distance than when I use regular graphite.
