I had a lost day when my mum decided to try leaping through the air. Gravity interceded. Anyway, I’m back to the easel and working on the portrait of Jade along with the left arm, top etc. I took a video but I didn’t realize that the angle was odd so it was a no go. Will try again.   So here’s a pic of the start today.   It is very interesting the differences between what an SLR Canon takes and my little tablet. This thing highlights wet paint.  I think it is trying to interpret which if it wouldn’t do that I could actually get the tones.  Can’t believe that computers will be better at driving when they can’t see.    Red seems to be a particularly difficult color to pick up, that shouldn’t be any problem in driving eh?   At any rate I just keep layering cross hatch style cool over warm, warm over cool grazing in between until the right gradation arrives. Finishing the dress and right arm and then we are down to the details.
