|One of the five panels with the first pass of the sky laid in.|
It's been a very long time since my last post, but I've had a lot going on. The bulk of my time has been spent doing photography of some new items I picked up on ebay. I've shot close to a thousand photos, which will eventually be whittled down to around thirty images that are deemed paintworthy. I've culled out most of the chosen, and am looking forward to getting them onto canvas, but they'll have to wait a bit longer because I've picked up a big commission with very short time frame.
|The five panels ready to begin the aircraft component.|
I'll be doing five 16 x 16 paintings for the new Delta Sky Club at JFK. The subject will be various aircraft views (oh boy). My work will be presented on a wall comprised of seven wood panels. One painting will be centered in each of the five middle panels. I've done the photography, picked my favorites, had them approved, transferred the drawings and got the first layer of the sky painted into each panel. Now it's time to begin working on the actual aircraft.
This commission has to be done very quickly but I may post "in progress" shots. It all depends on how it goes.
