Last week while tucking in some mixed media work, I started this painting and used some of the mixed media application techniques in the background. One son asked what got into Mom that she doesn't do "real backgrounds," but I found this interesting.
I think I may have a few adjustments to do after it sits awhile and I look at it with fresh eyes, but here it is presently.
|Initial block in|
|First skin tones|
|Scraping on colors in background|
|Putting some blues over the bright colors to tie together with shirt|
|continue on the skin development, then - after this photo - further work on all parts, including an overall washing of color to deepen the tone.|
|Made adjustments to eye alignment and shape. and bottom lip. A couple other areas need some touches, I see.|
Blessings on your Sunday. This is the end of the church year. Next up is Advent, about which we will have more here soon.
