I worked from life today and approached this painting by looking at the spaces between and surrounding the figures and putting relative values of color down. I want to keep it abstract and to me, often a painting is more about the color than what I am looking at. Some of the color is the real deal, some invented and put down for the pleasure of seeing how it responds to the whole. Thursday I will paint these models again and complete the painting. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for looking.
