I am not going to post a picture of the painting "Pond" till it is concluded. It is very close. Yesterday I worked from detail to detail and fit each within the whole. This is exacting, consuming work. I am surprised I am enjoying it. My excitement reflects quality. This is a really good painting and it gets better as I finish each portion. I'll go back into it today. Yesterday several hands and feet were repainted and each works better as form and within the general composition. I also corrected the central figure's right arm (on his left as you view the painting). If you look at yesterday's post of "Pond" you will see an over-elongated arm on the central figure. It now reads correctly. What astonishes me about changes in form, such as this, is their improvement to the overall composition as well.
I'll post the one drawing of the day. This is truly a simple "warm-up" drawing, in that it says nothing but this: "Let me exercise my ability to make details within the whole before I work on the big, and similar, problems of the day."
