I shot photos this morning for the painting, which actually wasn’t as tough as I thought it would be, because I can make the angle more extreme simply by rotating the image a little. My model Jen did a great job, and posed for another painting that I’ve got in mind holding a red hot bowl. It’s an image based on alchemical calcination, which is the process of reducing organic material to ash. I haven’t entirely figured out the composition yet, but I know the central figure is surrounded by admirers and participants in the transformation.
