Girl in Red Shoes-Stage 2

 

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I painted the next layers of the underpainting for “The Red Shoes.”

My phone camera makes some of it look bluer than it really is, but as I said in yesterday’s post, I don’t have the same blue that Kara Bullock used which was Prussian Blue. She mixed it with Raw Umber and Carbon Black. I used Ultramarine Blue, Raw Umber, and Carbon Black. For the different shades of darkness, she also added Titan Buff. And again, that is a color I don’t have, so I used Unbleached Titanium which is close. They are both shades of off-white.

This way of painting with acrylics still feels new to me. I used books to teach myself how to paint in acrylics years ago, but I honestly don’t remember learning to paint neutral colors as a layer under the other colors. It is actually pretty fun!

In my class for Let’sFaceIt2020, we are beginning the next module of portraits in which we will be learning how to do profiles! I think these are going to be the most challenging poses of the year for me so far!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
