4068: Nurturing Day 2

I started drawing the painting I’m calling nurturing today. I was able to finish the drawing pretty quickly and then get right into painting as well. 

The first thing I was doing was establishing the major colors for the painting, so it kind of looks like there’s just random paint all over the place right now, but I promise you it has a method behind what looks like madness

I like to establish the light lights in the darkest dark before I get the painting, anything else then I also want to establish the saturation of colors which colors are more saturated in which are not

Then, after that, I usually start focusing in on the center of interest for the painting, which is almost always the face. And within that, I begin to refine the colors even more and work on detail.

This is just a study for what might be a large repainting.
