something different

Interior with Felix
in progress
oil on panel 11 x 8

He's going to have a lush, ethereally toned room to hang out in, kinda like those early 20th C genre interior paintings. Its been fun to draw him, I used 4b pencil on primed panel and washed it in with paint thinner and brushwork. Sorta halfway drawing, halfway painting.

some background underpainting filled in here, I do them higher keyed now so that the final result wont be so greyed out.
Here's Felix nearly done. Maybe just fix a few bits here and there, make the base he sits on "read" better.
