Wednesday Night Oils

Tonight’s session with the model was a curve ball…the instructor changed his position slightly and also the angle of the light. I was going to complain, but decided it was a great chance to learn to move some things around, an extension of what I’ve been focusing on in drawing class!

Then she had me put in the background tone, along with the shirt and hair local colors. A change of pace from last time, but it frames things nicely. Nothing too fancy, yet, but I do like how the cool shirt color I whipped up at the last second to suggest the shadows turned out. And drawing class is paying dividends in freeing up my hand a bit, visible in the suggestion of hair, so it no longer looks like a helmet…
