Broken but Standing
In an earlier post I described the steps I took in going from a photo to a painting. I saw things in that first “study” that I wanted to improve and this is the result of a second attempt:
My original intent was to do at least a couple of these smaller studies before painting a larger final version. I still may do that but first I want to study this one for awhile to decide what I like and what I would want to improve.
Incidentally, for those who might be interested, this is what my palette looked like by the time I finished this painting:
My palette is a sheet of glass under which I’ve placed a sheet of neutral gray paper and on the right I’ve placed a 9-point value scale as a reference.
