Kelly Berkey's Weekly Sketch Challenge.
For this week's challenge, I decided to paint Kelly's image more like a portrait. Reason being, the larger the image, the easier to paint. I tried one of Kelly's suggestions, which was to paint the values first with an underpainting of burnt sienna. My favorite part of the painting is the little bit of sienna peeking through the blue on the bottom left. I don't think I consciously planned that.
I'm really excited because my friend asked me to bring some of my artwork to her Cabi (clothing) party this Thursday. I want to get some feedback on my art and prints from some unsuspecting women. Should be fun, if I don't chicken out.
If you would like to join us, every week Kelly posts a picture of herself in a pose for you to sketch or paint or whatever. Over these past few weeks, I think everyone has improved.
