Up and around again today. Not 100% today but got the studio organized and sorted through my paints and requirements for this totem. Also got to Opus to pick up a few colours. Big sale there this weekend! I know that I'm going to end up back there to pick up a 30"x40" and toying with the idea of a 48"x48" exhibition canvas while the sale is on.
I knew it would take a few days to get back in the groove for my style with the totems; especially after being away from it for 3 1/2 months. Time just flew with the icon commissions. So I'm reacquainting myself with the sequencing of undertones, and getting my fingers on the canvas again.
I've done the block colours that I can do. Everything else requires blending. Did get the blue corrected as it was too Turquoise Green.
There will be loads of detail to work in this piece. But I approach this totem painting as all the others, open to the discoveries and challenges ahead. Two months before the Port Moody Arts Centre Exhibition.
