Backstage. Chiaroscuro.
Based on the tonal drawing below, massing in some of the darks. This will take a bit of time and patient work. It is hard to see the end when you get lost in the kaleidoscope, which may be why we need studies in pencil and/or colour.

I have embarked on a new painting in a tight harmony of reds. This is my tonal study.

Backstage. Colour beginning.
Towards the end of his life, as blindness approached, Degas did some powerful paintings in reds. I hope to emulate some of this aesthetic.

Backstage. Developing a new painting.
I am starting a new painting based on a drawing from some years back. I'll report back here from time to time. For anybody that wants to follow it, I'll post more or less daily updates on Facebook (www.facebook.com/swartart)
