I started this last night at Noel Robbins' studio. It's a mishmash of photos from two different tropical storm events, Fay and Ike. The canvas is 30x40, which is a lot of area to cover with oil paint. I started with painting in the drawing, but have been doing all the blocking in with a palette knife. I just find it an easier tool to use when covering large areas. The figure on the left has to be reworked...he's like a mini man. Not a problem; I'm still blocking in.
