Unmade Keys

Keys are the passes to secure places and to secrete places. So their blanks can lead you any where.

Digging for Srews

Digging for Screws

I am playing with the idea of screws being like fossel Turritella shells as Wytham Hill on the other side of the Thames is the remains of a Jurassic reef.

Under Painting of Jim

Under painting of Jim

The under painting allows me to slowly develop the portrait by solving the the process step by step. Here I have looked only at values; light and shadow relationship. The red of the background is acting as the middle value between dark and light. I achieved this by wiping out the paint where needed achieving soft or lost edges. The paint needs to dry now before I procede which I think will take about 7 to 10 days.
