Work in progress: Leaping Orca
5th April 2018
(Scottish Highlands artist’s studio series, no.2)
Things tend to get a wee bit messy as work advances, especially for a subject as dynamic as this one 😀
Compare with the relatively calm earlier stage of this work…
Note to budding artists: this is no way to treat your paintbrushes, unless you can afford to buy new ones frequently…
And there is still plenty more work needed – I underestimated the time it would take to finish this painting.
The final illustration will be posted soon… I hope!
