Hekate at the Crossroads Painting Progress

I’m sharing some photos of the progress of Hekate at the Crossroads, a new painting I’m working on that is not finished yet. I plan to add silver stars and possibly dogs.

Painting over a demo painting
New art. I’m painting over one of my demo paintings because I like to reuse canvas and my demo paintings are not completed paintings.
Black and white high contrast painting
Here I have established some of the values to create a high contrast painting. At this point I was going to have the statue’s arms raised but I changed that as I went because her raised arms obscured two of her three faces.
Hookers green Naples yellow paint field
Adding a bit of Naples Yellow and Hookers green makes the field look lit up by the moon. Love.
Almost finished painting! The colors and composition are coming together.
Almost finished painting! The colors and composition are coming together. The tree leaves are now starting to feel like an umbrella wrapping the scene.
This is where the painting is now. I need to work on the flame more and add some stars. Possibly a dog or two but I haven't decided for sure if I want that.

Here is a detail of the Hekate statue. I love the lighting here.

I’m having a difficult time getting the blacks in the tree to photograph. The top of the tree is truly black. The light bounces off of the art and I can’t seem to get a good photo.
