PAINTING WORKSHOP WITH MAX GINSBURG - day two
On the second day of Max's excellent workshop, we had an assignment. It was to make two quick oil sketches that included the entire body - no cutting off the feet allowed. After Max helped me correct the drawings, I think I did pretty well. One thing I learned was to make the lower legs darker and more purplish by using a little alizarin crimson. Pale skin is difficult for me, but by concentrating on tone and big forms, I think I did ok.
