I got new paints!! Grumbacher pre-tested. I love them. I could totally feel a difference. It felt so juicy. Yay. So happy!
I went back in and darkened the hair and the shadow. Here’s the new photograph.
This drawing took about an hour. Worked from an image on my phone. Am working on dynamic poses with weight shifts and faces.
I wanted to work on head proportions and the angle of the water.
I hadn’t painted in a while, so I made this simple image to practice control of the paint.
I’ve been planning to work with this image for a while. It is from a picture of my uncle as a boy. It was his toy.
I had to blow the image way up to work from it. That led to some interesting abstraction
