Can you see that we have some back-lighting in this set-up? This painting seems all about temperature shifts and capturing some of the really great colors which the light is picking out. Pete is happily a model who can carry a pose like this, and also he doesn't make too much fun of me for all the squinting and sticking my tongue out that he has to endure looking at while I'm concentrating. Glad nobody is taking pictures.
Tom Edgerton, our illustrious leader, frequently says something along the lines of "A bad day painting is still a pretty great day". And today was a good day painting. Aloha!
