Monday Afternoon Life Session - 11 June
Well I'm learning. This time I am realising that I need to simplify areas and not to try and get in everything in front of me, particularly if I want to get the figure properly painted in. I also need to keep my shadow colours free of contamination by white etc, I will now keep a brush set by purely for shadows. I like areas of this painting like the mirror and wall behind but the figure is obviously rubbish - the model (Frankie) was holding sprigs of red and green flowers. I should have got the figure in first and then put in the flowers. Still at least I'm learning from every painting.
