    Around 10 hours into it - around halftime. Still lots to do, especially on the hands and on the beak. E86B4347-A1EA-4A52-8A6F-1BE527DCEB80.jpeg

    I saw the top of the picture and thought “a normal picture from Franc?”. Then I scrolled further down and it went all Monty Python “...and now for something completely different...” on me. lollollol I really should know better by now :rolleyes:. Seriously, Franc, it looks like it’s off to a very nice start!:thumbsup:

    That is very true Nick.. Great start Franc, when I saw the hands and the phone I instantly had an image in my mind from A band called Nightwish track name "noise" Its all about people being on phones etc, The video is really well done. Anyway i will keep an eye on this and see where it goes.

    Short update. I still need to clean up and sharpen the lines around the right hand and the head, plus work out some of the highlight and reflections, plus some details on the phone. I think I've learned a great deal with this painting by using rather low psi (around 15) and stop worrying too much about overspray, but focusing on work out the values and shadows softly and gently. I am using an approach that "works" for me... not very different as when using oil and traditional brushes. It does not give you a photoreal effect, but in the end that's also not really what i am looking for.

    Like where this is going Franc! While it's definitely NOT photo-realistic, there is a three dimensional look to the hands. They really pop out at you. :thumbsup:

    Wonderful! Leaving the background dark really adds to a feeling of depth. :thumbsup:

    As usual Franc, I like it a lot. And I like the way you paint. Nice job. Looking forward to the next one now.
