Small changes to this painting. A layer of glazed white over the face.
Not much time spent today but I wanted to feel a brush in my hand again.
I’m waiting for the face to dry so I’m working the background up.
I’m still working like crazy on web stuff but I tried to get some painting in today.
I’m not spending a lot of time daily on painting so the progress on this painting is slow.
Working on the details of the face now and trying as hard as I can to understand the complex colors I see.
The super simple block-in for the whole painting is done. Tomorrow I’ll get back to details.
The best way to figure out a color is to also figure out the colors next to it.
I worked a bit more on the skin color trying to get a base to work from.
First layer on the face is close to finished and I’m moving outward into the background and down the body.
I’ve started painting and I’ve started with detail right away.
For this post and the next few posts I’m going to keep the text very short.
After some serious deliberation on my second morning walk I’ve come to a conclusion.
