Taking pictures of Cody for reference for the Traveler went well, so I’m pretty confident that I’ll be able to get moving with the painting once I grid out the canvas and draw the man in the setting. As usual I visited the studio this morning before I ran (I’ll run a mile most mornings, then practice yoga) and really enjoyed seeing the two pieces together. After a month of skulls it’s a great pleasure to move on into something else for a while.

I think the next work I’ll do to the Angel will be to add white highlights with the knife – when working on clouds I love the effect I get from glazing over rich layers of white, the glaze sits into the valleys, leaving the white popping up out of the dark.

I’m into a quite different creative endeavor today – roasting a leg of lamb for the first time! Wish me luck!
