That’s a working title, too, by the way. I still am not convinced it’s the final.
Oh boy. Have I been having fun with this one.
At first, I had a huge reluctance to work on it at all. I finally sat down and wrote about it and decided the reason I was fighting it was I didn’t know how I was going to manage the gold leaf part of the painting. Put it on first? Last? What was going to happen with the pastels? Would they all play nice together?
So I decided to experiment and get it all straight in my head before going any further.
So, with this done, I was free to play once again.
Stay tuned, skelly lovers! This is starting to get good!
