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 think I'm pretty much finished with this study for now. There are still things I could do to it: I need to tone down the thalo green with some red washes and I'm not quite happy with the woman on the right. In the previous state she had a little hitch in her left hip that I loved as it gave the whole figure a subtle sexy swing. I lost it when I tried to develop the figure more. Arrgh. Thank God for this blog: at least I have a record of it and with any luck I can get it back in the next study.
