When Ken, my husband, and I visited Colonial Williamsburg this summer I was already working on this series of painting featuring the interpreters there. These fellows were working on different projects. The man in front was working on a leather folio (as an artist, I covet a leather portfolio). The man in the back was working on a pair of leather pants similar to those he is wearing.
Again, the splash of light across the floor grabbed me and I love how the shadows play throughout this painting.
So here are the progress shots taken at the end of each painting session and the final painting. I still need to sign it but will do that today over on the bottom left near that basket. Then it needs to cure (or dry) for a long while before I can varnish it. When varnished, I’m anticipating that the flattish darks will come back to life.
