Finally worked up the courage to continue with this canvas….and it felt really good to squeeze out luscious oils again! I started with a thin burnt umber glaze over the whole thing just to get it receptive and take away the pressure, and then slowly but surely got into it (having to push through the thoughts of ‘i don’t know what i’m doing’ to get to the enjoyment part!). I got a bit stuck at the end with Kiaat’s hand so it’s a weird colour and proportion right now, and Anna’s eyes and mouth look a bit creepy but details to follow next session. The background also needs attention, i tend to get stuck into the figures and kind of ignore it. Otherwise I’m happy to be getting into it again!!
And for some close-up’s since you can’t really get the scale or see the brush strokes in the above photo’s.
