When I know I can do better, I am like a dog with a bone. I have to go back to it and chew and chew.
I re-drew and repainted yesterday's class demo on a new canvas quietly in my studio trying to find what I was after. What was lacking the day before. I got there, enough to put the bone down and lick my art lips. Here is the result...
The light effect is more 'considered', the drawing better. I really focused on the big shape of light and shadow falling on her face. Note to self, never work from one's head when you can't find a photo.
What do you think?
