I will complete this one, even if the background drives me mad. The original background didn’t work, but I want to keep this picture full of brighter colours.
I need to work a lot more on painting. I like painting a lot, but I haven’t seen so much of it recently, and now we have a rather fragile relationship. Pulled from a memory, a couple of anatomy references, a couple of different photos of the same model and a lot of imagination. I think I should do a speedpaint from a photo reference next.
One of the things I love about painting is breaking through a plateau on a particular piece and realising that one little thing you need to do to make things work.
