Beginnings of a Painting, Part Five

 I guess I should call this 'Middlings of a Painting,' because it's no longer the beginning, huh?  About mid-way now.

Okay, you can see I dealt with the slash marks.  It doesn't come across very clearly (because I am the photographer,) but because I initially laid down the slash marks with thick paint before fleshing it out, there is a texture there as well as the colors.

I've also evened out the tones of all three arms, bringing them closer together.
The gold is coming down from above, with big brushwork to open it up and keep it loose.

Next time I'll be working on the blood dripping from the cutter's arm.
