So I am almost done with the 48"x24" painting of "The Death of Fafner". I say almost becasue after taking pictures I think Siegfried's underlip is a bit extreme. I applied the lessons from the first large format painting and I was a lot more succesful this time in my opinion. It actually was a lot easier to paint knowing beforehand what the colors and drawing would look like. Also the brush strokes were applied more freely and I did'nt have to review so many areas as in my first attempt.
Here I am reposting my almost finished piece and the original study plus a "live model" piece.
