The first painting in the Fascia series is actually three layers and six painting in one.
The base is a sketch done at Hipbone Studio during the long term pose. The second is two torsos of my friend Amanda during a session at my studio. The final layer s from a long term pose with Laurel.
This is the first time that I used tape and layered on my triptychs. I set up at empty spaces in the studio, and painted three different views of Laurel’s face.
I like the results, it’s strange how the gestural lines on the base layer line up with the facial contours.
