The Temptress -work in progress

Temptress Painting -progress.jpg

The painting "The Temptress" was completed on August 12, 2015.
In a couple of these shots you can see the BLUE painters tape I use to mask off area of the hardwood panel that I con't want to affect. you can also see some of my reference work. What I try to do with my paintings is to closely mimic the digital work the painting is derived from, so a very tight pencil/graphite is done on the sized board.

If you look at the photo with the chair you will see my drawing table, I don't use a easel, this table easily configures to any shape I need.
