The obsession for purple continues...

This weeks purple figure. Where is the purple? as one may ask. Trust me, it is in there. If you were only there to see the bucket of the violet brush washing water at the end of the painting session... The challenge this week was mainly about capturing the model's delicate frame while preventing things from feeling out of proportion.(that was the original goal before the green entered the picture... stiff green paint... arrrg....) Looking at it on the day after, part of the background actually seems digital for some reason. Perhaps some had use similar source to create the custom brushes in Photoshop? Anyways, the picture was done with the usual material, acrylic on board 18x24 and about 1.5~2 hours.

From this week...

 Still following the trend of purple figures while trying slightly different palette. 18x24 Acrylic on board, about 1.5~2 hours.

Finally got to draw life animal for the first time in a very long while. As one may expect, it was total panic right from the very first stroke. Boy, do I need more practice.
