Okay, so I’m finally getting started on a new painting. This was an idea I had while visiting some friends recently and watched two women talking in their backyard. I invited one of them, Valerie, to sit for me later in both poses, changing her face and hair style to look like two different people (that’s her in the reclining chair.) These are pencil sketches on 8×10 inch paper.

I next made a digital color sketch using the program Painter to come up with a scheme I liked. The “vision” was a sort of Manet-style painting with a dark green background very loosely painted and the foreground figures more carefully rendered and brightly lit. We’ll see how well this one turns out.
