Blocking in the girl on the fence part II

The block-in continues with the light side and the shadow side.  I'll be in a good position to finish this tomorrow.
Hey, What's going on with YOU today? I'm interested!

I haven't been painting, but when I do, I enjoy working on it and going back to it and working more on it. Do you like working like this? To answer your question, I am working on a screenplay.

I like where this is going. I'm looking forward to seeing it completed. I like seeing works that are thought out and developed.

As for me, I began a new "girl" yesterday. I'm painting from a black and white photo for the first time. Having so much fun with color! I'm finding it freeing.

Your paintings make me miss working in oils. You have a nice free approach. As for me, I'm not back to painting yet. I broke my block with a quicky marker drawing yesterday, but I'm still putting together a wardrobe and a look for this medication induced new body of mine. Boring as hell, but brisk mall walking is more entertaining than the elliptical trainer. Maybe this weekend dioxinine will christen my new duds? Meanwhile,I enjoy looking at your work.

The luminosity of the brushwork reflects the floating feeling of the composition.

I'm at a Karin Jurick workshop in NYC! Enlightening! Meeting some amazing artists. I'm one lucky chick.

I’ve been enjoying watching the painting come together. I like the placement of the light..
I drew from life today, and watched it rain outside.
