Canto 1: Painting Mossy Roots and Rocks
I spent most of the night working on the environment around Dante's feet last night. It's hard to tell by the photo here because a lot of the dark tones went flat because I used very little medium on the textures. It will be easier to see once I glaze some more shadows into that area. The same can be said for the leaves to the left of Dante in the background. In another two days I should have most of the background finished so I can get back to the clothing. I'd like to see this panel finished in another week. I've been working back and forth on a commission of The Temptation of Christ so this has been a little slower than normal.
