Form in Repose: Session 3

I working my way over the figure thinking mainly about describing form through value and color.

Some of the value and color transitions are extremely subtle and I feel that if I don’t capture them I will lose the feeling of three dimensionality.

I’m not sure why I haven’t put in a background yet. I started adding in the cloth underneath the model but not the background.

There are places in the painting where edges are much too sharp. I’ll add in the background and use it to soften some of those edges.

  1. I’m interested in the progress without a background. It’s almost like the body is floating right now, which is pretty unique.
