To the pelvis

At last the first layer of the ribs is complete and I’m down to the pelvis and other bones and optimistically eying the sky and the TWENTY FIVE skulls in the foreground. (Whose idea was this?). I’ve got to get this Van Dyke Brown drawing completed, then I’ll be able to bring some zinc or lead white into the bones to soften the colour, followed by Titanium White for highlights which will make him really pop from the backing wings and sky.

I’ve been talking to Jean Amador at the High Studio in Moorpark about the Warriors show she’s planning September 1st to October 30th. I’m going to show the Prophet painting I posted a couple of days ago and Amelia Beheads the Alchemical King, but I think I’d like to do a bit more work to the piece so that she’s reaching for the ball of light within a forest clearing.
