The past few weeks we painted Justin standing In Johan's studio. Everything about the pose was terrific. The gesture, the light. the environment and Justin's unique body expression. This is a departure point for me. I started this painting not drawing but blocking in the masses with a biggish 1 1/2 inch varnish brush. Its a 24 x 30 canvas. Over three weeks I worked up to the drawing. I't a bit unfinished but I like that. There are a few things, direct light, reflected light planes. When I get to it.
