Long Day Slogging Over A Hot Painting

Well, at least it kept me warm on a cold day. I’m about to go watch Philadelphia Story for about the fifth time, so I’ll make this short. Here are a couple of pics of the Crinoid painting as it looked about 5pm today when I washed my brushes and called it a day.

I’m mostly focusing on the foreground today- a nice silty floor for the holdfast of the giant crinoid. The goniatite is beginning to come to life. More mañana. A great movie and a glass of wine awaits.

    Thanks for commenting at my weblog. As brains are my main interest, it seemed natural to quote the bit about neurology.

    In answer to your question, Semir Zeki has done a lot of work in the area that he calls “neuroaesthetics”. His lab website contains much of his literature on the subject:

    I’m sure you’ll find something interesting there.
