Day 166: Playing with an old Portrait

Painting again. I went back to this piece because I never got to finish it the first time around. I also tried a few different techniques that may be visible in the art – The difference is her new lower body and most of her face, really.

The face was drawn with softer paint brushes, and for the hand and arm I mostly used a more solid pen type tool and then later attempted to blend and make it match. I am playing a little with my painting style, and the intro to that was kind of the negative space drawing yesterday. I think I am learning to intuitively see where the “lines” should be a little more, which lets me block things in.
