Hi Matt it’s been a long time. One year since I was coached by you for my watercolor still lifes. My baby is 8 months old now. I hadn’t managed any art since he was born and just getting back into it. I picked up his fav toy here mr. froggie for a small ‘portrait’. I struggled to get macro vs micro angles especially around his head curves and eyes – pls help.
to share some plans for the painting: I plan to draw the viewers eye down the right arm to the window reflection in the rattler so I have to tone down contrasts in the face while painting right?. For environment I haven’t decided if it’s the wall behind the head or the Lower half of the painting that will go a tone darker to suggest mr froggie sitting on a shelf.
