It came to me the other day that it's been a full two years since I did a proper figure painting. I found this tragic for two reasons: one, I thoroughly enjoy figure paintings, and two, they're rather invaluable exercises. I immediately set about to remedy the matter, and have now started not one, but two proper figure paintings. I am, expectably, a bit rusty, and they're rather still in the "well... if you squint and cross your eyes a bit it looks about right" stage, but in an effort to not completely neglect the blog and to prove that I am, in fact, working, I here post a detail in progress of one of them (don't forget to squint).
