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 set up some carrots with a cutting board and knife in the studio and it really helped me to advance the painting. In fact I thought I was just about finished with this sketch until I noticed that the head of the figure on the right was much too small. By that time it was too late in the day to make a major correction so I just blocked in the new shape with a green underwash and I'll finish it tomorrow - I hope!
