Just finished this one yesterday. I was trying to create enough difference between my off-white linen pants and my oatmeal colored linen jacket. As you can see in the underpainting on the right there was little differentiation between the two. An additional challenge occurred with my knuckles upper left. I had done the underpainting (again, see right) in terra verte (green) so turning that into living flesh always presents its own challenge. All in all I was very pleased with the way the panel turned out, especially with my linen jacket. Very touchy-feely. That’s the aim. Full description of the whole project here.

    Since your days at Connecticut College for Women (an anachronism!!!) I have loved watching your creative process. What a joy that you choose to so eloquently share the steps to birthing a work, with those of us fortunate enough to be in your loop. You are a cerebral creator, El, and I love you so. The detail on this particular ‘piece’ of you is so lovely.
