I mostly just worked on clarifying my image and doing the underpainting of my canvas. I really do not know how to oil paint so this whole process is very scary especially since I am doing color. The idea behind this piece is to do hands, but to show the nails be pretty gross and discolored. I want the actual nails to be really short and weak looking. Having short nails is indicative of a host of things from sexuality to career and having grimy nails could be an indication of bulimia. I think this piece could imply a lot.
