6x6 Oil on panel.
This is a new day and a new painting. Tori was beginning to feel a little better and was sitting on the couch. I let her watch cartoons while I painted. Although I do need to play with this palette a little more, this is probably one of my better attempts of Tori-girl. A little more contrast would have made this one so much better. Placement rears its ugly head again. Had I put her just a bit higher so she doesn't have so much head room, this painting would have looked a lot better.
I love drawing or painting Tori. She has a very intense gaze. She doesn't look at things, she looks through them a lot of the time. One day I hope to capture that look.
Cadimum Yellow Light (Thought I would mix it up a bit)
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
