30" x 36", oil on canvas, 2013 The ninth painting (although there's no real order, unless you want to infer one) in my Tournament of Shadows series, this a sort of sequel to Between Maybe and Maybe Not . Below are in-progress details in the order I painted them: Here I am reusing my photo ref previously used in an earlier watercolour, Aisha (pensive) . There are still some very bright highlights to add. Click the skull for a larger-than-life view (depending on your screen size, of course). Surrounded by the orange ground makes everything look weird and possibly warmer than intended, especially the raven. Another earlier watercolour, evade , makes a cameo. Nearly done and covering up most of my orange ground, the values of the subjects settle themselves down now and indicate that they're not weird, after all.
