Above is one of the photo's I received (and my WIP) of a girl called Maia, she is the daughter of one of my online art buddies, she is so sweet, isn't she? I still have a bit of tweaking to go to capture a closer likeness, and lots more study to do on colour mixing and Sanden's 'Alla Prima' technique, but I'm pretty happy with how this little painting is going so far.
I'm slowly getting through the colour mixing exercises from the 'Painting the Head in Oil' book and I finally mixed up different alterations to the 'Light 1' Pro Mix Portrait Colour, learning how to change the temperature, tone and intensity of the colour, very interesting and helpful stuff!
I'm sharing with Palette & Paint (P&P), if you'd like to too, please do.
