I've just, well about twenty minutes ago, completed the next small work that is going to be posted on ebay tomorrow evening for bidding. Not going to give away what it is just now, so you will have to come back tomorrow evening to see!
As there is still some studio time available to me this afternoon before I have to do a few things before dinner time, I wanted to post what will become another small work for ebay. This is actually the first ten minutes of work on this one. What I am doing now is just blocking in tonal values and establishing 'break points' where light meets dark, bright meets shadow and trying to set in some lines of reference for the long and flowing hair as well as establishing some mid tones of grey to try and start modeling the animal, giving dimension to it. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to post this ten minute study so far. I would come back to it after dinner time but this evening is a broadcast from the Met of one of my favorite operas, Tosca, and that is not going to be missed! This little work, about 3" x 4", will have to wait till morning for finishing up.
