I added some colour and a flesh velatura to the figures. They’re coming to life now. I’m a bit tired today, and it’s hard to get motivated, but I managed to get some important work done on all three paintings that are on the easels right now. Painting the small works is a very different experience compared to the big pieces. The work is more picky and careful, there are far less opportunities to play with the paint and control accidents made by the knife, brush and rag. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s just different.
I’ll start bringing some detail in next, and I have to think pretty hard about where this event is happening.
