|Michael is recovering from Memorial Day|
|Memorial Day, I made a mess|
Though Steve and Zac is closer to finish than Guys, I started in on Guys first. The painting was started before the workshop I took last month. I was curious if I could rework it using what I had learned. As it stood, the three heads were just sitting there looking amateurish. Why not try to bring it up to some higher level? I am the client and the artist on this one. This is the perfect painting to experiment on.
Memorial Day, I attacked Michael. I had left him with no mouth and dull skin tones.I was having trouble with his jaw line and neck. Why not try to fix that which was broken anyway? I made a mess is why.
But I showed up for work again today eager. Things got a little better, but I didn't have as much fun as I did with the charcoal sketches. Charcoal I can handle; I've got a lot to learn about handling oils and brushes loaded with oils. It's going to be a long winter.
