New Painting Started: Over Her Shoulder

March 29, 2018

Okay, I finally got around to working up a new painting on that stretched paper I showed in my previous post. This will be taken from an old life drawing sketch I made a few years back.

I first sketched out the outline on the paper with a conte crayon, then used a wash of thin yellow ochre casein. I darkened that up by adding a little cadmium red. This cardstock paper is too thin for anything substantial. The water is really breaking it up, but not too badly to use for sketching. The paint layers from here on will have to be less wet.
