Now with this one, I'm getting closer to how I want my paintings to look. I painted this today, all by myself (so far, could change when I take it to class). It's not perfect, it needs some touch-up, but I'm getting somewhere now. I meant to paint this larger but started blocking in three small ones as studies, all with different undercolors to see if different colors made a difference. I ended up getting carried away with one of them--to the finish. Actually, this may not be finished. I'll bring it to class on Wednesday and see if Lorelle thinks it needs anything.
Truth be told, this one looks better in person, at least compared to how it looks on my monitor. I wish I knew how it looked on your monitors....
Now I'll need to start another painting tomorrow so I'll have something to work on in class on Wednesday. I don't want to waste time in class starting one from the beginning. I can do the planning, drawing, underpainting, and taking it as far as I can on my own. Then I can get help finishing in class!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend-- it is absolutely beautiful (but HOT) here. I'm off to go swimming!
