the evolution of my "Stan" painting (see posts below):
activating the surface on top
of the charcoal drawing
mark making starts,
absolutely NO BLENDING
below is where i was at the end of day two,
after more or less 14 hours of painting.
this is where i would have quitted without
Dee's firm/gentle guidance.
She wasn't "seduced" by him yet as she said...
i had no choice but to push on.
after about 20 hours of painting,
many minutes changes, big sighs and small marks...
i never knew i could go that far with a painting...
i am "seduced"!
