Two canvases with the same image. The first one came out bad (not shown). Will try to tweak it or try on the second one.
Started a new painting last week. Oil on canvas. Back to layering with a limited palette. This is the second layer (day) of work. Not sure where it will end up yet.
Completed this one today. 2' x 3'. Oils on board. Sleeping child 3.
I started out with umber to sketch out the form.
Then I completed the blue blanket while the brown was still a little damp.
The afghan beneath is scrappy with board showing through. It contrasts well with the smooth blanket.
