CMSA; next on the easel; a portrait commission; block in first of a jungly lookin landscape (pictured here), next i'll put the head of the subject ( in safari hat) kind of transparent in places so you can see through her..than a foreground of woody orchids and tropical birds...grateful to this client whose giving me free rein; a rare and wonderful thing in a commission! ps. using fastmatte white oil and neomeglip in my block-in mean it dries enough for a new layer every 8 hours...amazing how fast even the thicker more opaque colors dry!!!
