A Still life underdrawing on canvas panel in graphite. I got carried away and rendered it to much. I will use a kneaded eraser to lift off some of the graphite in preparation for the underpainting.
I will speak of beauty of shapes, and I don’t mean just shapes of living figures or their imitations in painting, but straight lines and curves and the shapes made from them.
-Plato quoting Socrates
Mixing complementary colors: ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.
I hate doing color charts. It is difficult for me to stand their mixing paint, without actually creating anything. However, I do see the benefit of doing them, and I need more practice mixing colors, especially understanding how to create neutrals from mixing compliments.
I was inspired after reading Betina Fink’s blog on the subject matter.
