Bare Feet

I’ve put down the first rough layer of Foundation White that will become the Magician’s bare feet. Pretty plain right now, they’ll be re-drawn and get a couple of layers more before they’re complete. I’m quite pleased to get them started, because they have needed attention for such a long time during the process of making the painting.

I’ve chosen to paint the feet bare because I like the idea that the Magician is feeling the earth between her toes, literally grounded as she completes the alchemical work to find the quintessence.
