I am almost done with this painting - I pretty much hate plastic but find myself fascinated with it in this type of situation. I wanted to get the feel of it as a transparent filter for the bright sunshine - the way bodies look when they are seen through it as well as the way the sunlight/shadows change as a result of the light passing through the plastic. Just a note: my new computer has arrived!!!! I am hoping for a smooth transition but know enough after having done it several times that it may be "time consuming." So, I hope to be back online by tomorrow afternoon (at least my fingers are crossed)..........we shall see.
