Today I was lucky and had a very nice visit in my studio from Izzy. She is very interested in art and she helped me with the underpainting for this oil study that I worked out today. Tomorrow I will start on the big canvas. It gives me a general idea of how to approach the large canvas and gives me a chance to see what works and what I would like to change. It is just a general sketch and the work I start tomorrow will be nine times larger. In the larger work I will capture a greater likeness and will have more room for details. This is very exciting for me! Thank you, Izzy for stopping by and showing an interest. You are welcome in my studio anytime!
