I got the painting done from the last update, kind of happy with that one. Features studies, they're all of me except for the top left. These took about 2 hours each. The actual piece is a 11 x 14 so they're quite small. I used a limited palette of Ultramarine blue, cadmium red, and cadmium yellow pale. And a hand study from the same pose above.

16" x 17" oil on board, still a work in progress. The board's been primed with an acrylic gel medium. Is it completely archival? Not sure, probably not, but I need to experiment once in a while, and I wanted a transparent ground with a thick texture to paint on.
