Last night in life drawing class I wanted to focus on using thick paint and bold brushwork.
Painting thick is hard work and requires you to be super focused, if you want to do it right at least..
To prevent being caught up in all kinds of color choices I decided to limit my colors to only black (ivory black) and white (titanium white).
I premixed 3 grays so I had 5 values to work with. I also used the palette knife in some parts of the background and for the slash of light on his collar.
I really have to focus to keep the bold brushstrokes and prevent them from being smooshed together.
When the painting is dry I'm considering using a glaze of transparent oxide brown to give the image a warmer look, I prepared a version in Photoshop.
Which version do you prefer?
