A New Year
Before AJ left for his trip to the UK for "studying abroad", he granted me a visit to the beach where I photographed him at the most beautiful time of the day. I love that orange "glow" just before sunset! Unfortunately, after AJ had left, I realized that I hadn't taken enough reference. I was not happy with the placement of his left foot, so I had to ask Natalie to pose for me in the same position, at the same location, in the same shoes (or similar) to reposition it. I'm pleased with my "block-in" in burnt umber, and feel the transition from "her foot" to "his foot" went well in my drawing. As the painting progresses I will continue to post.
