Just checking in. Looking and wondering. Your last two comments speak to me. I have learned to get the concept somewhere in my mind where there is no thought, draw it out, then mull a bit, sometimes a few hours, days or years. Then I start and let the painting have a conversation with me, so to speak. So, like I said, I understand. Looking forward to your next post.

After looking at the legs. And as it related to the body and what the work might look like over all. They seem to be
to far apart. So use heat and pulled them together a bit.

Don't really like the way the left foot looks. It looks to much like a chicken foot. So will redo.

I think I'll beef up the hands and feet a bit. Give them more of the bone look.
