A little more progress on the mannequin painting. This is one of those paintings that I'm going to be sorry to see it end. I'm really having a blast. Probably because I'm not in any hurry, noone will shout as I fiddle about. Anyways, I'm starting to feel a little like Pygmalion, and I've been thinking about that Gerome painting in the Met, which is one of my favorites. This is a still life painting but it's getting closer to the direction that I'm eventually headed.
