This is drying very fast. I am really surprised. The layers I am adding are very very thin. Each layer seems to pack a little more punch on chroma. I am going to go in and reinforce my darks today. Yesterday was mostly the indian red and burnt sienna. The sienna dilutes the red and makes it more semi transparent. It also makes a very nice warm red. I am going to have to paint something that focuses on that red because I am becoming a fan of the color.
Gotta make this quick so I can get my layer put on and then become a slave to the hungry mobs in the kitchen.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
