sermons of redemption #486 verse:33

His eyes were calm with purpose

but his heart could not be found,

he's out there in a state of bliss,

just walking it around.


Layer one.  Didn't have time to finish the face. 


Layer 2 of the yellow.  Left some of the first layer showing through as a kind of reverse shadow.


O.k.  This is more like it.

Hand and torso almost done.  It looks like muscles without skin.


Hand.  Needs a bit more work.  From a photo of my own hand, taken in a mirror.

Close up of the new background colours. 


Torso finished.


Recalculating, recalculating....  Legs done, and the pink background behind the head.  Now I have to do the blue.  Ha.  I see I missed a spot.

More turquoise background.  Slowly, slowly.

Left side done.  You can only paint for so long.


Almost finished.  Worked 'til 2 a.m. then called it quits.

Finished the background.  Working on the text now.  I painted another layer of white on the lettering, and I'm going to remove the green space around it.  The word 'just' is already done. Finished the lettering (not shown), and now I'm adding a darker border around the whole painting.  I think the pink circle needs a bit of work still too.

Slightly darker blue border.  A bit too much shine from the lights on this photo.  I'll have to take another one.
