08/16/09 Joe (session 3)

Filed under: --Joe & Hilary, 1-Progress/Sessions — pendantportraits @ 9:34 am

Day 2 of painting (3rd session): Two weeks have passed since Joe and I were able to work together. Because of this, I began by making a portrait sketch to get the forms of his likeness clearly in mind (pen and charcoal on gray paper). After that, I applied diluted base tones of acrylic washes (no medium) to the painting. The Pastelbord is very absorbent, and it took these beautifully. Joe was wearing a dark t-shirt, yet I didn’t commit to this in the underpainting. Overall, the head formed up and the work developed well (as a painting not only as a likeness).
