Lab adore WIP3
I have finally finished the background and have begun the under painting on the face of my son. I love this stage, looking at all the colours in the skin beneath the flesh tones which create the light and shade and transform the 2D sketch into a 3D image. He does look a bit 'bruised' at this stage but this will disappear once the skin tones are glazed over the top. For the underpinning I am using brown madder, caput mortum, ultramarine blue, hookers green and quin gold. Have a look at someone's face and see if you can see all the colours that are there.
