More Big Project

As I settle into the detail work of filling in and finishing the various parts of this triptych I am realizing what a big undertaking it is. When I imagine these projects at the start I never quite grasp their magnitude. Partly it's because I am working in acrylics and you just can't get away with the same sort of fuzzy vagueness that is so wonderful about oils. Plus I am attempting to get this very decorative Art Deco kind of look.

My niece Spinnacker has been helping me with my female anatomy. You'd think after all these years I would be an expert but I still tend to give them overly broad shoulders, narrow hips, misplaced breasts, etc etc. It's kind of embarrassing. Of course it is again my attempt at that art deco stylization....
