I continued working out the composition in Photoshop, creating an elevation of the wall with the furniture in place so that I can see how the figures are going to work in relationship to the environment. I’m looking forward to continuing with the work when my students are here and can get involved.
Last night I worked on the right hand side of the Angel of Death, bringing that painting a little closer to completion. I’m not particularly happy with the way these feathers turned out yet, they need more depth; another layer of colour will help to make them work. I haven’t done any of the feathers above his arms yet, so I’ve moved the platform over so I can get them started in the next week.
At our academic convocation this morning our Dean Joan Griffin introduced me to the Freshmen student class as Professor of Magical Arts! Very Hogwarts. (My PhD robes are particularly medieval, so I resemble a magician when I’m fully clad)
