Who am I?

in steepshot •  last year


Starting a new painting with acrylic paints as underpainting. I decided to use a bright yellow to get rid of the white canvas because the white fights back and I think the yellow is setting the mood for this African child. I m going to experiment with metallic colours bronze gold and green with touches of ochre and browns. So my first stage is getting a good drawing on the yellow background so my foundation is good to build on. Keep looking as Ill post my progress.
Step one: yellow coat on canvas
Step two: Drawing the face and making sure of getting a perfect likeness as this will save me many headaches and struggles in my next stages.
Step three: getting my values of the face in place. I hope you can see that there is areas drawn on the face to represent the values from dark to light.
