acrylic on cradled panel
I decided that since I work full time, have a second job and upcoming commissions, I am not going to kill myself trying to get a painting done every single day but rather just paint everyday.
This is the beginning of "Beach Day". I am trying to assess value patterns and get my drawing correct. I toned my panel with burnt umber and used it to lay in the figures. The negative shapes help to correct my drawing. See the spaces between the legs and the arm of the man and the dog? Its close but still not right. You can tell I struggled with the man's arm. Yes drawing and painting are definitely challenges!
