The approach to this painting is a little different than Moses and Aaron.  Still developing shapes, forms and colors.

These are images from a new painting I am starting about Jacob when he is wrestling the Angel.  This is a very enjoyable stage in painting on canvas- feeling out the forms with yellow ocher, then raw sienna, and burnt sienna.  These pictures represent about five hours of work.
