Aother week with Misty's class. I am learning so much! First of all I am working larger, 15" x25" for the Nest Nymph. I love combining charcoal and pencil into my paintings. I used gesso and pounced all over the surface to get that white mottled look. The second portrait I used really bright, brilliant purples and yellows, a palette that is very foreign to me, but I like the colors, although a painful process but worth it. I think it will get easier.
