Last night I started a new painting. It’s going to be one of those that takes a while. A few firsts for me on this picture:
- The picture is commissioned (the last commissioned painting I did was when I was 12)
- I did not choose the subject
- It’s my first nude, semi naked painting
I am working from a normal coloured photo but am trying to paint in sepia tones so last night I made the colours up as I went along. Today I took the photo and changed it on my computer to sepia. I think I will be reworking the colours I have used here. Hopefully there will be a big change when you see it next.
