Painting Continues


Day Three. Figure torso; naples yellow, venetian red, cobalt turquoise, mars black, titanium white. Swan; venetian red, mars black, titanium white. Tree scene. Part of fire scene.

With a steady hand and adequate eyes a tiny face is no easier or harder than a large portrait. The principle is the same when painting any object; copy the blobs of dark and light, then use knowledge of the object to expand and refine. The turquoise was for a blue back light.

In other news the Lyceum Theatre centenary poster I designed has appeared in town. I think this will be the cover of the special anniversary booklet.
