Caty / Mary update…

July 20, 2008

It’s been a long time coming on these two portraits.  Mary (on the right) is still quite undeveloped, Caty (on the left) is approaching the “over-worked” line…it’s a delicate balance, and thus I haven’t pushed.  I’ll work on them for a few hours, then come back to them the next day.  (Which is also, a lovely way to work with oils, as it allows the previous layer  time to dry.)

I’ll be so thrilled to finally peel the tape off of these two…maybe tomorrow?

On another note, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter my Blog-A-Versary Give-A-Way!
