I’ve adjusted the figure to be a bit more central to the picture plane. Still in early stages and I hesitated to even post a picture since it will probably change dramatically with each new layer. I’ve found, tho, that looking at a picture of a painting sometimes helps me see things that I miss with my naked eye. So here it is with a detail of brushwork .
The angel painting is pretty much the same as in the previous post. I have a background and a figure and they don’t quite go together yet. The back ground has pale, pastel “morning” colors while the angel has bold, saturated colors and full of expressive brushstrokes. I have to think less literal about the background. It’s not a sky but an imaginary place.
I’m having neck and shoulder pain. I think starting painting again in earnest may have contributed to the problem. The weather changes here haven’t helped either. ( hot, cold, hot, cold!) I am hoping with some P.T. and pain meds I can get myself back in shape.
Digital images taken without flash with a Nikon Coolpix camera. I’d love to get a DSLR but they are still pricey for me.
