Woman in a Red Chair Day 4
I talk about my studio so much I thought it might be interesting for you guys to see what my work space looks like. Just a couple of days ago I began painting using the computer to view the photo because I can zoom in more easily using it than printing out scores of pictures. It's a bit of a problem because I'm not quite disciplined enough to stay off the internet while I'm painting, but it's also good because I can listen to the This American Life podcast while I'm working, and that's quite a pleasure!
The 2nd picture is after I worked on the piece a bit more than the one above. I added some pubic hair and refined the legs. The next time I have time to work on it, I'll work on her arm and hand more and lighten up the neck a bit. I am very excited about the way the skintones are coming out. In the enlargement (the 3rd picture), they're a bit clearer, but still not quite accurate. There's a lot of green and pink and purple in the colors. Flesh is so delicious to paint!
