Worked much of the day today on the background in the upper right hand quarter of the painting. I had my intern working on building up the preliminary layers on some of the demons and the victims in the bottom of the painting. Things are going well but it's still amazing to see how many hours of work only amount to a portion of this painting. It's unbelievable, but I'm growing more excited about it the more I work on it. There is so much potential to add little elements throughout the landscape. Looking at a lot of Bosch to influence these little scenes. I may work on it more tonight but here's where it is for now after a full day.
|I worked on some of the distant fires burning among ruins in the middle of this picture. The right side is still the rough in.|
|Some of the figures in the bottom middle getting a rough layer of flesh tones to build things up for later.|
