skulls and bones

I’m still working my way across the painting, reaching about three quarters of the way this evening before fading. I’ve painted the most distant ones quite faintly, lifting offf much of the paint with a rag so that the brightness of the white is removed. As the skull get closer they become more carefully defined, while the opposite is true as they recede – now they become lighter, with less contrast.

Faded fast this evening. I’ll get back into the studio in the morning, ready for a morning’s work.
