Figurative Painting Today in the Studio

I spent the day in the studio today getting the first coat of color onto this canvas. It is a general layer of paint not specific as yet but I am pleased with the progress. As I paint I refine each layer with more detail and get more specific with my color contours. I loved using the Gamlin Torrit Grey made from the air ducts at the paint factory.
It was great to get a full day of painting in today.

As I painted I listened to "The Book of Love" by Kathleen McBowan. Its kinda like Angels and Demons by Dan Brown but better. Its pretence is that the Book of Love was the gospel according to Jesus and it describes the Sacred Union of love ......specifically between he and Mary Magdalene. All reveled through a researcher who is studying the bloodline of Jesus. Interesting!

You have a beautiful atmospheric sensitivity. I love seeing this in layers. I am trying to document some of my current explorations so I can see the layers but it is so very different. Now to go have a cat snack. T

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
