Dorian Gray Continued


Work continues on Dorian Gray.  Right now I'm focused in on the sky and getting the color balance of the painting just right.  There has been a lot of push and pull with the sky.  Sometimes it's better not to get the effect you want straight off. The result of having to fight  for it is sometimes better than what you originally envisioned to begin with.  I have a strong feeling that will be the case here.  The sky is becoming very rich with texture and history as the struggle to get it to look just right continues.  Tomorrow I'm going to focus in on the figures and play with the figure ground relationship.
