Work on my 'Stepchildren' series continues. I start with a scanned sketch, paint in Adobe Photoshop, all on separate layers. When a file gets to be a certain number of layers, say, 15 or so, I save a flattened version, rename it with a numerical suffix, and continue to the next 15 layers, and so on. The face and features change a lot during this process. And as you can see, I often have a few windows open at the same time. The redhead on the left is the preview in Adobe Bridge of another painting I've done.
