Can you keep a secret? (work in progress)

Okay, so it’s not really a secret… I’m very excited about the new painting series I’m working on, which I’ve nicknamed “Faces” until I can think of a real name. 

For this series, I decided that I would use black rather than white as the base canvas color to bring a different quality to the tone and colors. I’m still deciding how much of the background will just be left black rather than colored over.

The header image is a detail from the first painting, Secrets in the Wind.

So far I’m quite pleased with how this one is turning out. I have a few adjustments to make and details to add, but it’s actually near completion. Here are some more pics including a sketch of the overall composition (sorry for the glare) and a few more close-up details.

I’m looking forward to sharing the completed painting with you… Stay tuned!
