Most of this morning was freezing! I had about 6 layers on and no jacket, so the wind pretty much cut through me. Then by around 11am the temperature got into the 50's and it became a beautiful sunny day. I couldn't move the scaffolding by myself early on, so I spent the first half the morning going into parts that I hadn't completely flushed out and developed them further. When I had the scaffolding, I immediately began painting the two girl in the top middle. I like what I finished and it was a great feeling to do it, because each of them had given me a minor headache during the drawing stage and I was a little concerned that I wouldn't get it on the first try. This becomes a little daunting when you consider how hard it is to cover over black.
So I feel really good about what I managed to get done today. Tomorrow I get to draw and paint Patrice Pike, who was one of my favorites when I first composed the reference illustration.
