Working on my arm
My two hour session was all too short. Normally I struggle to keep going that long and it's now much clearer why that was the case than before today. Almost all my work so far is on my torso and it hurts there a lot - who likes having their ribs done for starters?. Surprise, surprise, the arm is relatively pain free and I could today have taken another hour with no trouble at all. It's obvious really, but until you go through the experience you can't really understand the degree of truth.
I talked to Ben about the problem of my snake woman and mermaid disappearing from view with strong colours around them. Not much can be done on the arm except to strenghten the lines and put in some highlights. But that's for the future and he now got to work on the seaweed and some outline for rocks. The upper right arm is now almost complete.
