will keep us from gathering at USC Aiken to paint. The weather predicted today was terrible (tornadoes and torrential rain) but we soldiered on.
First break. An all over wash of quin gold some burnt sienna alizarin a touch of mineral violet.
Coming along more of the same colors.
When I left Aiken
Now. I keep losing the edge across her arm and thigh where the drippy background meets the body but really liking the background. I can lift the burnt umber off the skin.
I also lifted her shoulder about 1/2″ to make her body more in proportion with her head which is a touch too big.
Added some more darks to her face especially around the eyes and the chin.
Really like the background which is a combo of all the colors used plus cobalt. Nice swirly look made mostly by splattering wet on wet.
Will post her again after I lift the spillover on her body. Have to let it dry first.
Highlights mostly lifted out now.
My favorite bit. Andrews turquoise and yellow ochre stripes. Or was it burnt sienna
