A new, looser way
« on: June 10, 2017, 06:47:19 AM »
After watching a few videos I decided that I've been painting wrong. I prefer to get as many details as I can, but that's not always the best way to go. Sometimes it's best to just give enough information for the brain to know what it is and fill in the rest. Drawing with less detail is called loosely. If people like this I'll draw more like it.

BTW this looked a lot better before I scaled it enough to fit here. Originally it was drawn on a 12x16 canvas, oh, and I added the background digitally. I guess that technically that makes it mixed media but the woman was oil and I'm happy with her.

I'm not totally sure. I'll have to have a few more looks at this one ...
