I had a somewhat early and mostly productive morning today. Daylight savings time will do that. I went into the studio and worked on my new painting on cats cradle. Its on that beautiful large board I built. I’ve laid down some rag papers and some plastic to experiment with textures and different painting surfaces. When finished, if all goes as planned, there will be 10 hands on the board.
I plan on really rendering the hands and then spending a lot of time drawing thick yarn through each hand to show the various hand movements. The colours will somehow through colour mixing show the order cats cradle is done in. I haven’t quite got that figured out yet. Here is one set of hands half done, I’ll go back over them in oils later once all the other sets are in there.
