Another canvas for a friend, and another spiritually inspired piece.
I have a rough idea where this is heading, and hopefully by time I've got the wings in place (rather than the current rough sketch) I'll have the rest of it figured out.
Out of curiosity, does anybody else paint 'blind' (so to speak)?
I need glasses for close work (less than 3') but I sometimes find it helpful to work without them, especially on backgrounds or for drafts.
I find that it stops me fixing on details, and instead work on the structure. It's especially good when doing under-painting as it reduces things down to dark & light.
