Nucleus Gallery in CA and the genesis of a work...

Today, I've been working on some pieces for Nucleus Gallery's "Power in Numbers" benefit exhibition and sale....I finished one, and then decided to photograph the progress of the other. Here they are:
My messy studio drafting table. "Gillian" is close to complete; "Maeve" has
not yet been started. My awesome vintage Binney & Smith watercolor set that
I got from the fantastic store, a year or so ago.

A close up of "Gillian" (almost complete) and the underdrawing for "Maeve"

Progress...adding watercolor...can you tell I like green?

Maeve is a red head.

And now, the sky...

Adding blue shadows...

The addition of stars in white acrylic begins....
