A Study in darks and lights

9 x 12
Oil on Raymar Panel


My goal for this piece was to simply show dark and lights…to project a likeness with as little information as possible.  I was doing great and then I started to knit pick to I had to stop.  I used a photo resource of a beautiful young woman who works at Huckleberry Fine Art in Rockville, Md.  It is a fabulous gallery…if you want to see some great artwork and have a great time…stop by!  When I asked if I could use Kerilynn's picture for a resource she generously consented.

So day 5 of Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 challenge…a day of mostly rest…produced this sketch.  

Tomorrow I have the enormous pleasure of painting from a live model!  I am spending the rest of today setting up the scene and sketching so I will be ready for her!  


Yayyy!!! Thanks for commenting!
