Bad girl! Every OP artist knows not to run out of *that* white!
I feel suitably ashamed of myself. I don't know how I let it happen

Today I started my first ever portrait It's only an hour in and there's a lot of things that need tweaking, but I'm pleased with the progress so far:



I started off blocking the colours like I usually do, then realised I'd be better off working on the face and getting it right before starting the shoulders and back.

No, wait! I have done a portrait before, years ago. I'm going to redirect this painting into something similar and post then and now pictures

Re: 2019 Male Nudes

I would never guess you used different colors because you'd run out of the right ones actually the colors make a very harmonious palette here!
And unusual skin tones make the viewer wonder more, it creates a wistful feeling...

The start of this painting was a baaaad time to realise that I'd run out of luscious, opaque, Sennelier white. Unfortunately Neopastel white and cream are slightly transparent and coverage was a bit more difficult.

Re: 2019 Male Nudes

Wow! For only an hour's work, you have a terrific start. I love this posture, the gaze and neck lines already. I can tell this one's going to be really interesting.

Looking forward to your "then and now" photos!

Wow, Sarah! Just an hour's work and the face looks so perfect already!
Love the position, "looking over the shoulder" - very lively and interesting
