4129: Bynum Wedding Portrait Day 17

Working on this wedding commission today after putting down a bunch of paint on the bride’s dress yesterday, I was instantly struck with a new realization that the dress didn’t look like a white dress in shadow. It looks like a blue dress. Yikes!

So most of the session today was trying to adjust the cerulean blue that I had down into something that leaned towards blue, but wasn’t completely on that side of the spectrum. Basically, I made the blue a bit warmer… I think it looks a lot better, but I still have a lot of fixing to do not only on the dress but on her portrait and the flowers she is holding. That will be for another day. The rest of my art session today will be all about idea generation and building up my idea bank.
