Portrait Painting Update 5!
The painting is really taking shape! I am pleased how it's turning out. Today I am working on Eva's hand and refining some spots on Rachel. It's getting kinda time consuming and I hope I can make my deadline for submitting to the Portrait Society Competition! It's going to be tight. I'm trying to be very cautious to preserve the delicate shifts in temperature in my reference photo. Warm vs cool (not just light vs dark) on such an intricate subject as a human figure does SO much to communicate form. I really love the yummy iridescent folds in the fabric. <3 So much fun!!! Big shout out to Craig! Thank you for increasing your pledge yesterday. :) It put extra pep in my step and will help me take my art to the next level. Thanks!!!
