THIS IS THE LAST STUDY PAINTING for the Viking Family Portrait. Next week I will begin the final painting. The first step is to figure out how to set up the 6' x 4' canvas in my studio for painting. The next step is to draw the composition onto the canvas with charcoal. I hope to get paint on the canvas by the end of the week.
Thursday evening, September 25th, from 6-8 p.m., I will be doing another painting at the Runestone Museum - this time of Andrew, the model for the Viking father. He will be in full Viking costume. I will also bring in all the study paintings and drawings for the painting.
If you were at the last painting session, you will remember the seating situation was not the best for viewing the process. I am going to change that and the lighting so you can see better. Hope to see you there again. This session is free the public.
