|drawing and first washes|
|next step #1|
so, what's different? well, up until now i didn't handle multiple light washes on top of each other.
|next step #2|
i think the face is just about done. i need to do some work on the hair and decide on what to add to the already subtle background shapes. i have already decided to go with a minimalist approach to her shirt letting pigment sort of "peter" out as i worked down to the bottom.
|final step before adjournment of workshop|
i packed up at 4pm wishing that i had another day, or two, or a week. ted is a great guy and excellent teacher. his last day session on composition was eye-opening and may have been one of the high points for me. no dogma , except to maybe ignore much of it. from starting with the size and shape of the paper that helps him say what he wants with the painting, to the placement of the figures on the sheet, to the cropping of the photos before hand on photoshop, all are invaluable lessons almost worth the price of admission on their own....okay, not really....but quite practical. i am looking forward to his trip to la crosse next june
