I've been working off and on these days with figurative 
pieces in exploration of movement and interaction. 

The above three panels illustrates the preliminary 
layering and blocking-in. All imagery is still very 
loose, but will tighten as the painting progresses. 
I will also apply a sliver of gold leaf following 
the skating path.

Isn't it amazing of all the contortions skateboarders 
subject their bodies to, while in flight?
