Alan – Study


Hi Matt!

Let me know your thoughts on this piece, I think I still tend to go too dark with the darks but I really feel that the picture is just as dark, would it be best to start thinking about changing the values when I’m painting those areas? Maybe go for a dark brown, it’s just that then I would end up having to lighten up everything around that spot too. I don’t know I’m a bit at a loss when it comes to these situations…

Thank you for your continuous help 🙂

    I think it would be nice to use the paint over paint blending philosophy to fight the over-blending. To increase saturation, use high chroma form lines. To decrease saturation, scribble with grey form lines. A little texture promotes translucency. Or use a grainy blender brush.
