African Model This Time

I love painting dark skintones. It seems like the temperatures get reversed. Even under a warm light, the lights are cool, and shadows stay warm. I was late for this session, so I decided to skip the linear underdrawing phase that I usually do, which seemed to make the painting better actually. Although I wish I had painted a little more thick.

Man, your stuff is really inspiring lately.

Once this current project is done I am planning on taking a stab at oil painting. I'll be coming around often.

Marco! This is -lovely-. Actually, the rest of your work I've been catching up on is beautiful and so very inspiring. I love the almost-impressionist look of this one...

I should really sketch more these days. So been slacking off!
