Anuka 16x20 Canvas panel
A Work In Progress. I started this painting around 10 AM this morning I got this far by 2 PM.this afternoon. Then I had to stop for the day.
I have the foundation done pretty well (I think), now I need to make my darks darker (DUH?) and just get the painting DONE! The photo of my painting shows the painting a little lighter than the painting and there is some glare on the right side. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it! :-)
I saw the photo of Anuka in a blog with gorgeous photographs taken in Georgia "Between Caucasus and the Black Sea". The photographer,Jemal Kasradze, is the uncle of Irina one of my "blogger" friends. Irina also makes some of the photographs in "Uncle Jemal's" blog. :-) You should take a look at both blogs ,they're really good.
I worked on this piece today (Feb 25th) but I still have more work to do. Obviously! I was able to darken her hair and I'm relatively "happy" with that. BUT, her face looks like one of the characters from The Munsters TV program! Make it DARK DARK DARK There, I've said it and I know it! But, dang, why are darks so hard for me? :-)
Fiddly dee, tomorrow's another day!
February 27th - worked on this painting some more. I'm beginning to like her eyes more. The photo doesn't represent her hair well - it's much darker in the painting.
