Work In Progress

Following on from this post, I’ve now completed the pencils for this new painting. This is why my paintings take so long to complete, as the initial drawing alone takes hours. Now begins the arduous task of applying layer upon layer of paint. Sometimes I wish I could find a way of working faster, but part of me feels it would be a form of cheating, and that same part of me is in agreement with Cormac McCarthy when he says: “Anything that doesn’t take years of your life and drive you to suicide hardly seems worth doing.”
