In the process of sprucing up my portfolio site. Check it out- #art
4th week in studio -
It’s interesting what happens when one gets caught up in the moment, perhaps feeling that time is of-the-essence and making sure that the person who is modeling for you is comfy. After walking away from last week’s initial lay-in of composition and color, I saw some of the most obvious adjustments that needed to be made.
First was changing from a vertical composition to a horizontal one. And next was the lighting. I had the lighting from both sides and it was a wash-out. Moving the light source to one side made all the difference in defining forms.
So there you go - it is so beneficial to put a work aside for a bit, then returning with fresh eyes.
Really looking forward to Roberto Osti’s Anatomy of the Head workshop this weekend at Townsend Atelier in Chattanooga.
