“We work in the dark — we do what we can — we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.” -Henry James

Spent a little more time working on this one. I want some of the book paper to show through in the background, so I am working with chromatic black and zinc white for drapery as they are more transparent than the ivory black and titanium white I usually work with – and used for the crane. I combined them with a generous amount of linseed oil to work with them as glazes. It needs a lot of work yet and I have to decide how much I want to show through. Still a work in progress…
