I've been behind the curve with my abstract plan of getting some paint on some boards the last few weeks, so i thought it a good idea to just get it going on this rainy day.

Its still in the beginning-ish phases, but im feeling it.

Thanks for dropping by! :wave:

Looks great to me. I m curious about what you might change. Love the cubist fragmented quality and the palette.

A little update. Still balancing the concept with where its going and pushing values around.

I liked that transparent warmth from the initial lay in, so ill probably work that back into the tone values as i get the background looking good.

Thanks for dropping by!

I have a couple of these in a series I'm pushing forward with now that i've got a little time. Here's a slight update before more color and backdrop elements are introduced.

I was intending on glazing this piece thoroughly, bit it's been a wet-in-wet affair so far, as my studio is just staying cold and my walnut medium is being lazy. :lol:

Hey, thanks for the look.

Another update. (This is still as bright as the previous update-my phone seemed to have an issue picking up all the value shifts.)

I had no idea how much work this fella was going to take to get where i wanted it to be (lol)

I'm starting to see the expression i was going for leaking out.

This is also an experiment with glazing in oils, as i've always been a more "direct" type painter, I want to try and get some of the clockwork down with that style--i suppose it's turning out alright.

Thanks for the peek.
