I almost didn’t make it to finish today’s painting! Time just got away from me all day. I started off with a sketch I had started later this week but didn’t feel too good about. So since I had no time to start a new one on a new reference I decided to fix up what I had.
I quickly added a little bit of paint to mark out the basic colours and get going. Just a light layer to start with.
I added more colour deciding not to go too dark as I have been of late. So I only went 2 layers over it. The first layer; to add that medium tone and the third only to add more tone to the darker shadowy areas to create more of that contrast. And thats it. ^_^ I only wish I could’ve captured that playful smirky smile a bit better. But I’m happy.
