Busy busy day today. Made good headway on the drapery underpainting. Again this is raw umber and titanium white with the wash colour showing in the shadows. I will highlight with white to bring up to the correct tonal value once dry. This is pretty much ready for velatura and opaque colour.
Had a bit of a tinker with the tonal values of the wash underpainting and threw a bit of colour into the drapery. Blocked in the thingy at the bottom with burnt umber and white to prepare for a decorative design thingy. Thingy thingy thingy.
I received delivery of a few cool things today (One of which is pictured below). A remote control for my digital SLR and a Cool as Funk clinging, grippy, monkey-hand tripod type affair. I can wait to get a model in and get some extreme camera angles on the go.
Excited by life's possibilities
