I feel the need...the need for speed!
I'm not completely happy with the way this one turned out. I like the light source mysteriously emitting light from within the trees and the mood created by the expression on the giant.
The biggest hurdle I'm dealing with is the drying time. "Fat over lean" is really slow for me, so I'm going to try an acrylic underpainting with flat colors as a base next time. The layering and layering and layering kinda limits how much I can accomplish in one sitting. And doing "Alla prima" all at once with no mixing is beyond my experience at this point. I've heard of painters combining acrylic underneath oil, so we'll see what happens!
