Today I focused on taking more time with each painting. Maybe 15 minutes longer than before. It gave me time to look in more details of the shadows in varying intensity.
Today I painted at A2 size for the first time. It works much better for the brushes I have. I can add a lot more details to each painting than when I was working at A3. Also tried using a black background too.
My first day of drawing faces. I am drawing these faces semi-blind. I’d say about 80% of the time I am looking at the photo I’m painting from, only looking at the paper to check I am not starting parts in completely the wrong place!
I used A3 size paper today and I struggled. The brush I was using (smallest aqua brush I had), was too big for the paper and I was unable to add details. I’ll try getting some A2 paper and see how that goes.
