Today was our last day of class. It was a success and sorry to see it end. I am so impressed with their talent. They worked hard on "limited strokes" exercise. Look at that awesome bird and gorgeous rose!
I had a hard time getting the flesh colors today. There were so many subtle changes and when I mixed the colors differently, they just didn't read correctly. Too blah... I made the background more saturated in color but it didn't help much. I'll keep on. Only the fourth day with this new medium.
This is a new medium for me. I feel like a total beginner. I started out with a mixed media sketch tablet and was not happy with the results. I moved to a toned sketch book and liked how the colors really popped. I'll stick with that one for a while. I also tried painting on my marker paper and liked it but the paper is so thin. I am dating my sketches and hoping for some quick improvement. 😊
