OK< here's the first installment of my very first Painting. I am using the layering techniqu, since it is more forgiving for the steep learning curve I have ahead of me.
The first underlayer of white
The second underlayer of burnt umber
Got some greens in for the background
Added in some yellows for shadings
Here's my first layer of the fur, in burnt umber mixed with black
That's it until I get the next roll developed. I am actually delighted, it seems like some REAL artist is channeling through me, because it's turning out pretty nice ! Obviously, as I go along, I have to change where I photograph this painting, AND subsequently, where I paint, as the light hits the paint and just vanishes it in glare.
