This blog will follow the process of my current project: a series of three 5' x 9' figure paintings called "The Feast of Venus". I'll be posting the preliminary drawings and oil sketches as I complete them, and possibly add some commentary along the way. I have just begun this project and am working on the first painting in the series which has the working title "Stirring the Pot".

I have often wondered why I lack the ability to draw or paint. I am very observant, but I can't make my hands transfer what I see to paper. I admire people who can paint and draw.

When I was a kid, I did some freehand drawing and water colors. It has been a long time since I gave up trying for lack of talent.

Why is it that two people can look at the same thing, yet one can draw a good facsimile of it while the other cannot?

you absolutely nailed the third woman's face - the proportion and expression. It's superb. Great job!
