Esther Stage 1
Here is the beginning of the Esther painting- the painted sketch that I will paint over completely. It may be hard to get a sense of the scale from the photo but, let me assure you.... it is big.... I'm thinking 4 X 5 feet may be a little too big, actually. It really is a challenge to get the proportions exactly right on this large a portrait. All those little details that makes a painting look like someone have to be in exactly the right place on this great big canvas, otherwise, it is just not quite right.
