I thought I would explain what I'm using for my paint, so I took a picture of my palette. I work on a piece of glass with a white piece of paper underneath it. The glass measures 14" x 22".
So here we are today. I have started to paint more of the objects in the top of the image and have begun to finish off the legs. I am spending most of my time in the top of the painting right now to make sure I am getting things right. This is where most of the "stuff" is, so I want to make sure they look like they exist in the same space.
I am finding that the most important part of this piece is going to be the reflected light. I think this is why i like the arm right now. It shows good reflected light. The rear end will do this, as will the feet and a portion of the legs, plus I'll bounce it around throughout the image to unify.
The reflected light is Cadmium Red with a touch of Naples Yellow. it glows. It will glow more because I'll put cool colors next to it.
...til next time
