April 18, 2012 Update:
I am still working on my Judith copy. I am just now trying to apply color and fleshtones. I took a pic although it is somewhat blurry. It will have to do until we get a better camera. As I continue I will keep you posted! Cheers!

Close-up detail of underpainting
I am working on a copy of August Reidel’s Judith for my painting workshop class. A painting must have its beginnings and here is mine. This is the underpainting so far. I have to complete the sword and hand. In measuring out the proportions and scale I ended up cutting off the right and bottom part of the actual painting. I actually kind of like it, though I am nervous about proceeding with the painting as the original looks very realistic(and actually much larger in size). But that is what I am trying to achieve with this painting in oils. Well I guess we’ll see what happens. I will try to follow up with this painting. Oil on 22″x 28″.
