midterm madness

yikes! i'm drowning in paints, sleeping in paints, eating's a glimpse of my progress for figure studio's midterm, i'm only on stage 2 out of 458 >_<
prepping the wood canvas took awhile, laid layers of matte medium and a thin coat of clear gesso. This is by far the biggest canvas i've worked on with oils, 30x24
and that's not even the challenge!
natural lighting, you confuse me!blocking out the figure
