(shot beneath studio flood lights)

I ran out of daylight before finishing this piece up, so I shot it under the harsh halogens (bottom photo) I then photographed it in natural light, the following morning. The transparent green wash in the underpainting really shows up in both photos, and you can see the scraping (to the yellow underpainting) and the filmy white overlay. I’m really happy with this piece.

I love it when I lose myself in the studio and all sense of time and place disappears.
