Today's figure class lesson had to do with grays again, and why they are so necessary to describe flesh. The model in the photo had a clear tan line and it was an additional challenge to describe it convincingly along with a flat lighting situation. We're learning that there are different approaches to getting the paint down for a figure painting, not to mention that no matter which method you use, there will always be that pesky constant series of "corrections" thing. That's the way it is. Put down paint, evaluate, change or leave it...on and on.
This is phase I, we'll finish this painting next session. I'm happy with it to this point.
