Feast of Venus – work in progress

Over the last few days I have felt a little more confident about my Feast of Venus painting. It had become such a monstrous black hole, sucking up all my time and money through model fees, that I had to put the canvas to one side, to allow me to finish some other paintings. I resumed work a while back, only to find that I was getting bogged down with some technical challenges, and an inability to turn this collection of studies into a cohesive whole.
The last few days have been much easier, and for the first time I’m beginning to believe that I can finish this painting. Still lots of work to do, but I’m hopeful.
