Woman Waiting in Garden
Oil on Canvas – 24 x 20 inches
For this session, we chose to position the model completely in shadow. After positioning her, it seemed her head and face fell into a deeper shadow, which caused grays, teal grays and brown earthy colors to fill the scene.
My challenge with this piece was to match the deep tones of the scene. I wanted the painting to emerge from the background with somber, bluish-gray tones.
In retrospect, I could have taken a more direct approach to this piece. But I was initially unsure of how dark the tones had to be to hold the figure. Thus, I started painting lighter and continued to paint the piece until I acquired the deep tones. At the end of my painting session, I used Liquin glaze to deepen areas of the painting while allowing the color changes I had previously created to stand.
