Leathery wings

IMG_0713At last the base of both wings is down, but I lack the feathers between the skeleton’s legs. I’m particularly happy with the texture of the paint in this layer, because I know it’s going to give me a rich base upon which to place the feathers asI work to define them. The studio is impressively chaotic these days because we have two painting classes and a life painting class all crammed into the space, making it a hive of activity.

Paul Lucchesi is here, staying at my house while he’s the resident sculptor at the University gallery. He’s a terrific guest, because apart from being a fabulous sculptor he’s also an excellent Italian chef, so I’m doubly blessed to have great conversation and good food with him on a regular basis for a month. Life is good!
