Recovery: Session 10

I normally stay away from using black but today I made an exception.

The models boxers needed to be really dark. In fact they are the darkest thing in the photo. Looking at the photo from todays work the boxers seem like a black void in the middle of the painting. There are some lighter values on them in places but it is hard to tell.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."

  1. I try to look at your art as critically as you would read my writing (which is probably why I don’t let you read much of my stuff…) but most of the tie I have a difficult time being critical.
    However, today I feel the black color of the boxers is a little unnatural. Maybe when it’s finished I’ll think different, but it’s interesting how you have opened my eyes to the details and to voice that opinion or view as honestly as possible.
