This is as far as I'm going to be able to get on this painting. It was nine three hour sessions and I had to miss one. I decided to skip the portrait and focus on the torso. I relied heavily on the poster to keep me on track as I windowshaded my way across the form. I'm a little bummed that I didn't get to do more as I think was turning out to be one of my finest paintings. I got a little glimpse of what's possible though and I'm psyched to do more! My instructor at GCA really opened my eyes to the color possibilities and I'm hoping that I'll be able to spot just as much color nuance in a lighter skinned model.
