Today I worked on making color swatches using the colors from my portrait class: flake white, venetian red, yellow ochre, ivory black, and burnt umber. I used the left over paint to make the face.
Here's my first attempt at doing 5" x 7" paintings from my head. It felt weird not having any visual references. I did like trying out lots of color combinations. I was working in acrylics using some techniques from a Robert Burridge video. Need to watch it again.
