This image is very dark. Photographing in the studio with my cell phone isn't really working so well haha. I'm happy with the way the figure is shaping up (see original sketch here). There are a few stories trying to push there way into the piece. I'm going to have to pick one before I can tell you what it is that she's holding.
The colors on this one make me very happy. In fact, I think when this is done, I'm going to hang it in my house. The charcoal sketch underneath was so solid that the paint washes aren't making a lot of change (which is good, I liked the sketch). However, now I have to be very careful not to create new sharp detail in a style that conflicts with the sketch. Of course, now I'm just worried about messing it up. Haha.
Ok, this one does not resemble the model, maybe an elderly version haha. Still, I'm liking this piece a lot more since starting the paint (see original sketch here). I've been having good luck with the acrylic washes, and the colors are coming together nice. This is maybe a little over half done.
