Anatomy of a Painting: "Fanny"

Here are the steps taken to create "Fanny".  The first 5 photos have much to be desired.  However, you will get the general idea from them.

I have created over 40 paintings in this series, "Imaginary Friends", so far.  With the exception of the monochromatic painting of "Amelia", every painting has at least 14 colors on it (layer after layer after layer).  Each painting takes between 3 to 3-1/2 hours to complete.

Fanny is available for sale on my website.  She is much clearer and colorful in person.  (Her resolution has been downsized for the web.)
