The oils weren't dry till Saturday and, as I had my youngest's 9th birthday party on Sat., I had to wait till today to do any more work on this painting.

Using the tracing, I offset the design once again onto the canvas then set about giving the figures some shape. Also picked in some background details (the houses.)

More detail being worked in giving the figures a bit of depth.

Now I wait for the paint to dry once more before working on it again. Shouldn't have to wait as long this time as the paint is not as thick, so I'm hoping to be able to work on this some more tomorrow. :~)

*is in awe*
I love being able to witness the different stages a pictures goes through until it's finally finished. I love witnessing that even more when the picture is painted by you. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to once again drool over your talent. It's really brilliant.

By the way, if you don't mind, your style looks very classic and refined. Do you have a classical arts education? Especially the way you draw/paint hands reminds me of some great classical artists :)

Blushing big time here! No, I don't have any 'classical' training. The only training I have was a 2yr Illustration Diploma, which I did in 2002/2003. The course has been invaluable - it really honed my skills and you can really see the difference in the quality of my art before and after if you look at my Star Wars art - http://www.maythemusebewithyou.com/starwars.htm
All but the first 4 and the Abbey Rd one were done before I did the course. (the Abbey Rd one was during - for a pop culture assignment ;~) )

Glad you're enjoying watching the painting grow!
