Erik; I had to look up Fritz Willis. I had seen his work before but never really knew who he was. That background he uses, the parchment of canvas or whatever, that was exactly the colour I was trying to emulate in this piece. I started with the darker brown then realized that the original flesh tone I was using matched it pretty closely, so I tried to push the flesh colour more towards the reds and bump up the highlights.

Anyway, the I found this:

...which I had never seen before but it looks awfully familiar. I guess there's little that's new under the sun.

Debra: Thank you.
