Back to work today on one of the central demon clusters. Having to sit on a table to work. I don't know if it is the cold I have or not but my back has really been hurting the past few days. My head feels like 100lbs and my energy is low but nothing is going to keep me from getting a good days work in. I didn't get to work too much yesterday on "The Damned." I have another commission for a life sized "Crucifixion" that is due for a church in Ohio by Lent. Now would be a good time to start! I spent the day working up an incredibly dramatic composition and the rest of the evening building a 4ft x 8ft panel for it. I puttied it and came up to my studio to work. I'll gesso it every hour or so and by the morning it will be ready to paint on. I will be juggling both paintings for the next few weeks.
Anyhow, here is a shot of the painting as of December 27th. I've worked my way to the left side of the painting along the bottom. I'm working on the larger demons in the middle. You'll see a lot of areas that are more white or blurry. Those are still in the sketch stage.
