I slaved away at the art desk for quite a while this weekend. I came to the conclusion the I may need another light in there. I already have a fluorescent light above the desk and a lamp attached to the side, but I noticed that the colors seem somewhat off. Now that could be because I’m painting fairly monochromatic at the moment and the colors are playing off one another, but who knows. Here’s where I’m at, I’ve just been slogging away at the background trying as always to stay loose.
My greys look very purple when placed next to all that green and a yellow ochre looks almost peachy. A few more hoses, some darker shadows and some mist then on to the easy part the figure.
