Cling is closer to being finished, but there's still more to do. It's a great piece, so I'm not too concerned about rushing it off the easel yet. The strategy of pre-mixing large batches of base colors has worked out very well. I'm trying to walk a fine line between having a large mixture of colors while maintaining a monochromatic/cinematic lens filtered look for mood. The weather has been kind to me with rain throughout the weekend slowing my drying time down a lot and making it easier to blend large areas.
I also started working on the first of many drawings that will make up the show as well. Usually, when I exhibit it's paintings only without any drawings. Modified has requested a mixture and I'm more than happy to oblige. I really feel like I don't draw nearly enough. I have a tendency to work only on the easel and only sketch when out of town or while sitting at a coffee house. My camera in a lot of ways has replaced my sketchbook. I can see pros and cons to both really. Maybe, as a result of this show I'll find a balance between the two.
