Work In Progress . . . almost done.



I'm almost done and so ready to polish off the rest of the chocolate! woo hoo!
The bulk of this painting has been mostly yellows, pinks, orange and burnt sienna colors so it was time to cool things down. I whipped up a batch of purple using Alizarin Crimson and scraped the last little bit of Ultramarine I could find from my palette, kinda reminded me of licking the plate after finishing chocolate cake. . . .uh, I mean watching the kids do that!

Next on the menu is to clean up edges, even out the skin tones in areas that dried a little blotchy, and give the hair that wispy effect. Then I'll be ready to show you the finished painting in all it's glory! I can't wait cause I have another one I'm working on that is feeling left out! I'll show you that one soon!

Hi Lucy, thank you for visiting my blog. . .have fun trying out the creepy yellow eyes! You know, I met a man who really did have yellow/ambar color eyes once, I couldn't stop staring at him!

Beautiful face, and beautiful painting--the light is amazing and the hair and the shadows of hair on the face are so delicate and wispily perfect.
