I worked a bit more on the study on gold gesso - if this turns into a real painting and not just a study, I'm calling it "Grace." We'll see if I can still work on those hands without losing the look of them. And I've decided to have the obi in white and gold instead of the paler blue. I think it will look better after I lift that and add the white (gouache). More to do tomorrow.
Enjoyed a very quiet day painting and reading and catching up on some taped shows while getting some exercise on the HealthRider.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all the Irish or wanna-be-Irish today :) I heard the most beautiful rendition of Danny Boy by Diana Krall on our NKU station today - it was so moving and the first time I'd actually heard the whole song.
