New Painting Start: “Anna Reclining; Hotel Chelsea”
Here’s the latest start; oil on board, about 18×24″.
Rarely do I start with a vine charcoal framework, but the exaggerated 3-point perspective asked for it. Even still, I just wung the drawing, and as it turns out I pushed it even further–opening up the forms–which I like. As for the underpainting… in some places it’ll be complementary, and in others the intensity could roil underneath whatever analagous-ness goes over it.
