Another brick in the wall

I’ve been laying down the stones in the wall by first painting the dark shadows between the stones, then adding a layer of grays and white to the faces of the stones. I modified the shape and texture of the two megaliths on either side of the boys and subtly increased the height of the wall at either end, making it appear slightly “fish-eyed”. Some curry for lunch and an atypical but pleasant nap took me out of action for a while, but now it’s time to get back to the studio.

I’m going to have dinner tonight with my good friends the Amiri’s and Francesco Masci, who’s flying out from New York to pick up his paintings that have been on show in the High Studio in Moorpark.
