Darwin Day Liveblog 3: set-up

The painting is underway. I think I'm loving the Gold Ochre Transparent Hue on this one. And plenty of Naples Yellow, naturally.

This is the super-heroic Art S. Buck model in the pose, to try and get the lighting down from an indirect, overhead source in my studio, below.


Here's my set-up, this time on the dining room table. Should be moving along faster now.

Thanks Chris! It may be a late night, but I'm off and running. Should post some painted work in a few minutes.

Feeling better, I see? Still working on that Young Darwin painting? Cool. Can't wait to see it.

BTW-Naples Yellow *eye roll*, as usual, lol. (FYI-If you can't tell on this last sentence, I'm kidding.)

Chris
