Another Simple Study

I do not have a lot of work to display for this weeks post. With only a few weeks remaining in the semester, I am going crazy trying to finish all of my final projects.

Here is the beginning of another figure study, representing only a few hours of progress. I started with a quick line drawing and followed up with my first pass of color. The illumination is generated from my school’s awful fluorescent lighting system. As apposed to a spot light, the lighting in this situation is not very dramatic and the value and color changes are very subtle.

I love studies like this one, because they are very challenging for me. I hope that they will enable me to better control the gentle value and color shifts of my paintings.
