The stuff I love when I’m painting

bluepelvis This is it, right here. I love how I can wipe away the blue from the edges of the figure, leaving just a trace of paint that makes the edge softer and appear to fall away from the foreground. It makes me ridiculously happy considering that it’s really such a small thing. fixedbluepelvisHere I’ve posted two pictures, one before wiping the bones clean, with the Prussian blue going over the bone, then one of the pelvis after it’s been cleaned up. That little blue edge to the bones just sings for me.

I’ll do highlights next, having glazed the landscape with left over blue that will help to unify the painting regardless of what colour it ends up being.
