Home to skulls

Arriving at home last night was wonderful! Although spending some time in Britain was profoundly rewarding, including the best visit to Stonehenge I have ever made, with a beautiful sunset so powerful that it felt as if I could hear the sun going down to the horizon, it still felt great to get back home and return to work.

This morning I went straight to the studio and got into painting the skulls, continuing my efforts to finish the Angel of Death foreground. These went pretty well, but I felt myself getting weary after a couple of hours, and thought I’d better stop while I was ahead rather than trying to keep going and messing it up. I’m making the skulls that have their faces visible look toward the Angel on this side, as they did on the left, making the skeleton draw more focus.
