This grisaille (grayscale underpainting) of the interaction of Thomas and Jesus and the gathered disciples and their community, has been slowly developing over the past three years, the drawing took about two years before that. I feel like the end of this particular phase is finally in sight on the distant horizon. I look forward to seeing the structure fully unfold and ultimately to the beginning the glazing of colors.

Yes, that kind of transmission.
Is that where the term ‘masterpiece’ comes from? A piece, or THE peace of the Master? Both in the narrative of the image, and the narrative of the makers making, this is visible. Five years is a long time. Here is ‘go on’ in action! Great to see it, thank you.
Dude, what an amazing post. Thank you for sharing all of these detail shots!!
Wow…it’s coming right along. Splendid Jack….each area has its own geometrics, its own patterns including the faces. I can become easily (and happily) lost in the details.
This is magnificent–thank you for posting. I look forward to seeing the finished painting.
Wow Jack. This is like going back in time. As if you made this document long ago. Maybe you did! Who knows? :- ) Beautiful. Just great. Love that pendulum above the wounded hand. Powerful symbolism. And the light on the body from the hand. Fantastic grey/brown/whites. Very beautiful.
