Flamenco dancer II - step II ... Zipping through the 2nd pass!

A busy non-artistic day today acting like a gerbil! I did have 30 minutes to block the canvas for this painting some more...

 A third pass should do it for me... going for impasto passages and stronger contrasts. I'm still getting acquainted with paint behaviour... and as paint sinks in, I see an opportunity to leverage this phenomenon to mix transparent colors directly on canvas....

Note: My inclination is still color... so may as well roll with the punch!

Note to self: "There will always be time to go back to Zen painting sooner or later!"
Subnote to self: "Gotta try charcoal on raw canvas!"
