Blue maidens

A lovely afternoon with my painting students led to a few hours of concentrated drawing on the Empress canvas, continuing the work from my initial foray and adding the majority of the other figures to the composition.
I’ve edited out the globus cruciger from the image for now, but I’m not sure that this will be a permanent change. I’m pretty happy with the way the drawing is going so far, although naturally everything will change when the painting work starts.
I’m still enjoying drawing in blue far more than my customary graphite because I can see it more clearly at a distance than the grey, although I don’t know why this should be.

My student (and model for the virtues) Devin has set up her blog, documenting her work on the mural project.
