During the course of the day, the name of the piece changed from Shelia x 4 to Shelia x3. I had originally designed the piece for 3 figures, but found that four fit better on the canvas I already had, so I put in the figure on the far right. What I think I'll do is paint the three figures then take the canvas off the stretcher, build the right size stretcher, and re-stretch the finished piece. Hopefully that'll work OK. I haven't done it before, but as long as I wait long enough so it's completely dry, it shouldn't be an issue.
The strong light coming in from the left is from my window - this time of day I get the last beams of sun coming in as the day draws to a close. That's how I know to turn on my lights or begin thinking about dinner.
Tonight my choice is dinner. I wish you all a good evening. I'll be on a Silent Retreat this weekend so won't be blogging again until after the weekend. Fare thee well.
