Here's the latest on my once a week figure painting.(9"x12"). I feel like I'm doing a pretty good job of shaping the light, but I'm not getting the refinement of forms and the connection between the forms. That could be do to lack of experience, not seeing enough of the underlying anatomy or not toning down the turning forms enough. I have three more three hour sessions with the model so I plan to oil out and just start tinkering my way down the form. I might lose some of the freshness of the paint handling, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
