I need to find a photographer to photograph my paintings as they are too large for the scanners available in my area. I don't know why there isn't a large bed scanner at Commercial Press in Cumberland. There is such a burgeoning artist community here...strange.
I enjoyed copying the William Etty and think I am beginning to achieve a light enough underpainting technique to glaze over properly.
I have paused to contemplate a palette to glaze this underpainting, an original work entitled "Falling". I want to keep it fairly dark and moody as I was thinking about the veiled sexual awakening in "Alice and Wonderland" when I drew it...a bit disturbing considering how old Alice was when Carroll wrote it. Notice I made Alice more womanly, perhaps to keep from creeping myself out. Perhaps I should illustrate the whole novel as a gift to my children. I've read it aloud 20 or more times.
