Work in Progress Anna2

Here is another work in progress picture. It shows my progress a little bit. I work quite different than other people in the studio I paint at: I usually do the background first. It allows me to see a preview early about how the art will turn out. Details are easy to change – but changing the composition would be hard.
I have two more sessions for this one, so still enough time to finish it.
The lamp is a very interesting part – that’s why I’ve spent some work on it already. It is made of black metal, but because the light blends the viewer, it is probably not black to the eye. Such things are hard to see because the logical brain part tells you “this is black” – and even harder to paint. I’ll still try around with it.
