At the Museum: 36"x18" oil painting in progress
At the right is the beginning of the painting. I've positioned the main shapes on the canvas and the basic color distribution.
At the left is the painting in its present state. I was in Paris this March for a few days and had a two day museum pass. So it was museums morning and night for those two days. This is painted from a cell phone photo I took at the Musee d'Orsay. (In my determination to travel light, I left the camera at home, so I have only a few cell photos of the trip.) It was my first visit to this beautiful museum, a converted train station, that houses much of the artwork of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
