Trying to get comfortable with green
This painting that I did in a quick two hour session last week isn't too bad, but there are some changes that I want to make. Mostly, I will try to get a lot more green into the shadows. I am not particularly interested in perfect skin tones, but in COLOR to convey mood and emotion. I have been having a lot of trouble learning to use green, so I will try it here by adding it to the shadows and making the lower cushion green. Also, I'm going to fatten up the legs and even out the breasts. I'll post the changes soon - stay tuned.
