Had an idea in my head so I went and purchased a new black canvass from Meininger’s
Can’t paint without some sort of stimulant. Since it was early afternoon I made a french press rather than opening up some Malbec.
Sketched out a basic outline and then started a base layer.
I have a problem of working too closely. I need to remember to step away, rest my eyes, and get a new fresh look at dimensions and highlights and make sure it looks good from far away.
