Half way

I’ve made it halfway across the painting with these egg-shaped skull base layers. Having finished the Traveler I’m very conscious of the importance of detail in these paintings, so I want to rework the sky to a more polished level, then improve the detail of the feathers.

My drawing students are working at producing three skulls from the front, side and a quarter view, which is really good practice for me as I see all the errors that I must avoid when I’m working on my own. Teaching is incredibly helpful because of this – I learn a great deal from my students. This group has done particularly well – they’ve learned a lot and their drawing has improved tremendously, I’m very pleased with them.
