"The Strawberry Siren II" Work in Progress

Just popping in to share some progress on this painting...

I'm really having fun with the process, and have decided that this painting will include a gold arch which will be made in conjunction with the frame so that they match. This is such a subtle classic pose, and I feel that the arched frame will echo that.

My Pinterest Anatomy Board

Useful for the students in my anatomy class and others: I have a board on Pinterest where I'm collecting images I find helpful for the study of anatomy. There's even some out-of-the-box stuff with Mermaid and other fantastical creature anatomy! I keep adding new things and also have other boards that may be of interest including figure drawing references, Art Deco, and hairdos... if that's your thing. :-)
