Establishing Tonal Values

Posted on January 24, 2018

When starting a new underpainting I look to render the facial features accurately and also, the tonal values. Establishing the correct lighting is a crucial yet tricky job. After havingĀ a moment to look at what I’ve done today, I have decided that this head will require another layer to darken up the shadows on the skin. I’ll start tomorrow’s painting session on this head once again, after it has dried.
