Thursday Night Oils

Tonight was going to be working more highlights, but after a lot of time spent mixing I decided to work on the tonality and hue of the lower light sections. The chin is probably the best result, the left eye the worst (didn’t have time to blend it or the right cheek back in). Always a matter of readjusting constantly, and when the class ends…welp, that’s it for this week!

Still happy with the direction things are moving and surprised it’s not wretched, as usual.

So worth it just for the experience mixing paint and improving my ability to analyze color. It continually walks the line between frustrating and rewarding, which is a perfect place to be while learning.
