Seated



Acrylic on Cardstock

Karin Jurick at DSFDF has us painting the figure again. I've never painted so many people!

The challenge she put to everyone was to get the figure right – the weight, the dimensions, the turns and curves – and not worry so much about the setting, and extraneous details.

For some reason I keep making peoples heads too big. I just keep putting more paint on and the edges seem to drift until the head becomes overly large. Instead of correcting this one, I'm gonna do another one manana.
