I've completed two more pieces in the Fashion Plates series, both measuring 24x24 inches, which brings me to fifteen paintings. Only seven more to go. Of the final pieces, I have a larger canvas prepared which will be the largest of this series (36x48), and a couple of smaller ones. The squares have been interesting in this series, the smallest measure 20x20 and the largest 36x36, so working on composition has been a happy challenge. In every painting I like the idea of challenging myself in several different ways, and one of them has been to center the image while still making the composition interesting. I think the movement of the fabric and placement of the arms helps. It's also been interesting to have a variety of shapes and sizes of canvases prepared as I often work in series on one size at a time. I also have no idea what I'll be painting on each canvas until I get to it which has been very compelling for me. Anyway, still plugging happily along, not sure where this will head once it is complete, but definitely enjoying the process.
