Huntress Revisited

by on Jul.09, 2010, under General, Work In Progress

I started this particular painting early on when I first picked up the brush again. Originally I got it into a sepia underpainting stage but once I got to painting the colour I destroyed it. In the end after a couple of days work I went back with a cloth and wiped all the new paint off. ┬áIt’s been hanging on the wall all these month and I haven’t had the confidence to touch it.

Anyway, I picked it up and started over. I don’t think it’s quite finished yet but it is a vast improvement.

16″x20″ Oil on Canvas

I have to say the camera didn’t quite capture the painting that well, the values seem bunched on either end without much transition in the middle.

My biggest problem with this painting right now is the composition. I did tweak it from the original. I changed the hand and tried to lead a few things towards Braveheart the pug. I also gave her the most detail and tried to lead the viewer in but the girls face attracts too much attention.

I really like how I painted Braveheart which is by far the part that I am most pleased with.
