Thurman #3

Sort of tired of black! My fingers are never going to be clean again! I am trying to save the white to last... so the black does not dirty it up... luckily the whites are mostly to the right side of Thurman. That is also why I am waiting to do the stone wall last... I usual do at least one layer of the foreground before starting the subject so I can "lay" the subject on top of the back ground.


  1. I had a run of black or black & white subjects just before Christmas and it was so good when I was finally able to clean all the work surfaces, keyboard, computer monitor etc ..... gets everywhere doesn't it?

    Thurman is looking good - lots of texture detail in that gorgeous fur

  2. Thanks Sue! Luckily I have my computer in another room... so that isn't so bad. I just can't get the black out from around my finger nails!
