Happy Friday everyone. I’m having a lot of fun painting this picture. I painted the sky first, and will let it dry and will bring in some color later on, I then painted the fire trail, but left the alter and burning sacrifice behind the figure as I wanted to jump in and paint the figure, which is why that area is gray for now.

I’ve still got a long ways to go, and I can see the finished painting in my imagination, with the large crowds and all the prophets of Baal. I’ve got a lot of water and reflections to add to the foreground, which will be a lot of fun to paint, and will go out and brave the cold over the next few weeks to get the correct reflections of the water for reference. The holiday’s have turned what should be a 10 day painting into a month, but oh well!
