I would love to finally wrap up the third and final installment of my "Furs" WIP, but I've been putzing around with the background endlessly and now my camera's broken. I've been thinking for a while of making a study of backgrounds. I want to amass a bunch of images of paintings with my favourite backgrounds and do thumb nail copies--hammer it all into my brain subliminally. I think that's why I love trompe l'oeil paintings so much--there is no background! Just more stuff that needs to be painted!
To allay feelings of inadequacy in light of my big blogging goals for 2016, I'm tossing up an old WIP from 2014. I didn't even realize I had these pictures but I uncovered them today.
