Day four. We had a new model today. She posed while we combined her image with two other sources — a place and a figure. In the afternoon she took two poses wearing different clothes to create the impression of being two people. We’re working fast to try to complete a painting in less than three hours at the same time that the panel size increases. It was extremely hot in the studio for the second day. These photos are quick, hand held shots, without color balance.
