|Tina - 3/23/15 - Pose 2, 9"x12", Acrylic on Paper.|
This was a great pose and I love this painting. There is a great balance between the expressive brushstrokes and how well rendered it is.
Her hair is much lighter then how I rendered it here. However there is a great effect to the darker hair. It is doing a great job separating the figures torso from her other arm.
I am getting much better at utilizing the three colors and getting a pretty wide range of colors from them. limiting my palette to three colors and seeing how far i could push the colors hase been a great learning opportunity. I am fascinated by the differences in the flesh tones. How ocher the yellow in her legs look and how pink the highlights on her chest look.
