Almost Done Commission

Posted on November 7, 2018

I’ve nearly finished this 30 x 30″ commissioned portrait. I’m not too happy with the girl’s hoodie – I want the colours to really pop out and I’m starting to wish that I had not done a grisaille and coloured glazes over top. It’s easy to paint this way but I now see that I should have laid in the colours with the black and then put the white highlights on last. As it is, the problem is that there is white mixed in to the mid-tone. I’m going to try and add another glaze tomorrow and my hope is that it will brighten up that mid-tone grey and create some deeper shadows.
