Key #6 (under painting in progress)

This is a commission of a Key painting, number 6 in the series...this time, I'm pushing that chipped paint look in the back ground. So far, I have transferred the drawing, did the monochromatic under painting and just started to lay down some blue in the back ground..that's it so far and it is already beginning to take shape. I like this stage but sometimes come to a screeching halt not knowing how it will evolve...this is a good time to put it away and start something new before I finish it.

This one is very cool. I like the chipped paint in the background.

Thanks Frank..I'm turned on by these aged surfaces. Instant nostalgia!
