I worked most of the day on The Candidate, the painting in the upper-center in this batch of current work. The underpainting is done. I’ll say it’s done. I don’t like the ground on this canvas. It is another of my experiments with materials that has proved unsatisfactory, but it does have the happy side effect of resolving a line of inquiry.
Several canvases in this photo, the white ones, have drawing paper taped over them and are ready for me to being working on the cartoons.
I like inserting these palette photos into the journal posts. I use the palette 2-3 days running before scrapping and reloading it. This photo shows the palette after a three-day run.
