Winter Break pt. 4: Figure Painting

gouache on watercolor paper 4.5-5hrs

Over the Winter break I attended a figure drawing Marathon and on the Final day there was a figure painting session with one of my instructors Cameron Chun. above is my thumb and below is the 5 by 7 piece. I think what I learned from this experience is the importance of following my original thumb. I feel I captured the value a little better in that piece than in my final. Another important lesson is to never stop practicing those fundamentals, and in regards to this gouache painting I was struggling with working with color. The models right leg had a blue ultramarine light as a secondary light source while a spotlight was used as a primary light source.
