Dana and Jacob - Painting Day 1
So added Amber Shellac and then dove in to the painting. I'm loving how the paint is resolving the background and creating a space.
Jacob is looking flat I need to go to a richer Brown in his flesh tones.
The window is looking crooked.
I need to do a study of boots and the side of a bed.
I am debating leaving Dana unpainted. Is it too much of a gimmick? Is this an action just based on the fear of not tucking this painting up?
I like the idea of a figure separated visual from its sorroundings. The space is intimate but the figure is disjointed and apart from everything. I will have to sleep on this.
