Meet the Wife of John IV - My Sister, Steph

A quirky photo of Steph ... irresistable pose

Thin washes of grisaille

Some wild background colors

More wildness

Some dark blues for depth and darkness

Work on the hair. It was here that I realized her eyes were too wide. Bring out the Magic Eraser!!!

Eyes better shape. Think I'll play with the hair next.

I've started a smaller version of Buddy as well, to work out any kinks before I do a large painting.

This is what I've been up to lately. And yes ... I am dying to get to some of those old car photos. too!
