The Middle of a Mess
The Reading Corner
Oil on Canvas
A few more details and still working on how I am going to treat that background. She is in need of some more warm colors on her face and I need to get some of the red in her hair on the opposite side. The good news is that I have nearly all that charcoal problem cleared up. I really struggle with being loose. It is probably going to take another session, but my model is a patient kind and she is fantastic about sitting there for me.
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
A #gouache #colorstudy using the same pallet. This is an attempt to do an imaginary #landscape and play with #composition. I like atmospheric environments. This is my base to begin thinking about entire scenes and not just the single item drawings that I have been doing. #art #artist #sketchvia Instagram
