Last Tuesday I posted the beginnings of a painting for my new book What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe? here.
As promised here is the second half of the progression of this painting.
Last week we left off here:
Next I built up her bathing suit colors:
Then I worked up the ocean gradations, and layered some brown/pink shades on her fur and the sand:
I came back in with my brown pen and darkened up the outlines, painted the shell, started layering the bucket color:
More work on the bucket, and I went in to clean up and darken the oval border:
Finishing touches added and I greyed out the border a bit:
The painting is at that "mostly done" state where I can't think of anything else to change, but I know I may come back to it later and make some adjustments. So for now I put it aside and start on the next one...
