|It was really cool to see all the different styles and perspectives of the same model. Oh and my piece is right in the middle there :))|
Okay, so I'm exaggerating a little. Anyways, the point is, I was a little freaked out for no good reason. It turns out... I love oils! It turns out you don't have to be official and fancy to use official fancy paint. I ended up using oils for the first project I did for this class, the pair of pears. Because they're awesome.
I didn't have enough time to finish the painting over the summer, so I decided to pull it back out again and see what I could do to finish it up.
|Still in progress...|
|Kathryn on the Couch|
|My palette... Kind of all the same color.|
I kind of messed up the colors of the fabric we wrapped Kathryn in (whoops), so I had to invent a color for the background. I also added some more dimension to the fabric with highlights and shadows, and deepened the shadows on her skin since I was scared of the dark this summer so she is super pale. Confession: I'm still afraid of the dark.
(Paint, that is.)
You'll notice she doesn't really have a face, or fingers.
|Oh, I forgot about her shoulder. Better go paint that.|
I just didn't want to paint them, so I didn't. Artistic license, you know. You'll notice she has toes.
That's as much as I could handle.
