I don't usually remember to take photos while I'm creating but as I did this piece in several sittings, and the camera was in the room at the time, I actually managed to capture some of the steps.
I knew I wanted to incorporate a snake with a face, interestingly a piece of wood molding I saw was the inspiration.
I always have to start by painting a piece black, I just can't seem to work from a white one.
I was beginning to think there was a brush thief in the house until I found the rest of my brushes lying next to the sink where I'd left them.
As you can see I added some texture to the face and applied the first coat of paint. There will be several more layers of paint before it's finished but it's on its way.
What have you been working on lately?
