This was a study that I was able to knock out in about 4 hours. There was nothing really to it but a study. I don't know who the model is, and I just basically found a face that I wanted to paint. This was entertaining. I should do it more often. I just might.
I realized the other day that I hadn't painted someones face since I've been in a relationship. WHAT!?!? I didn't even realize it. I had to look back to confirm this was in fact, chronologically correct, and it was true. My subject matter lately has been fair, "still".
This painting was just me having fun with painting the figure again. I missed mixing skin tones, and didn't realize I had. Proportions are a bit off in a few places along with a few other gripes but for the most part, I found it to be mostly successful (Nah, let's say productive). I was trying to get back into the swing of capturing a specific aesthetic the human face lets off, while trying to introduce the texture of my last works to this realm. When I was paintings figures and faces, the application was thin and smooth, with out texture.
I'm also just trying to stay in painting shape.
I'm absolutely planning on painting Eva. I just haven't gotten her to pose yet. When she can shoot, I can't shoot, and vice-versa. She next though. Thats for sure.
