Gripland begins, triple self portrait gets a mirror and easel

Here's the beginning of Gripland. I spent several days on the drawing; a forest of C-stands, behind a tv series set wall, with a small figure of a naked man walking through it. It's the literal behind-the-scenes jungle where the film techs live. It's monochromatic in a glowy way, mostly variation on burnt umber and ocher.

I revisited the triple self portrait, adding a silver frame mirror on an aluminum easel.
I still need to invent some kind of shimmer to signal the mirror's surface, and to refine the painted portrait without losing the 'in progress' look of it.
