I’ve been breaking down the composition of the Devil painting today, making construction lines on the canvas and sketching a little. I’m going to need a couple of models for this one, a man and a woman to pose as the slaves.Â I’m Â not completely satisfied that this is the image I’m actually going to paint, so I will spend a little time with it to see where it goes.Â
I got the first structural layer down for the Fortitude image, using Jen as the model and sketching a bear into it as the beast. It’s going to work well, I think. There aren’t many readily available bears around here, so I’m inventing him, which is fun. He’s twisting around the legs of the woman, completely disarmed by her quiet but immense strength.
