Sanctuary rework 3

 Greetings

I am still reworking my painting Sanctuary ( first painted 'finished' in 2009)

This it how it looked before the session.


I did some more work to the flesh tones  and hair with Burnt Umber, added more shadowing to the scrolls using Lamp Black and added some white glaze to the buildings, lawns and trees on the island.

The painting now looks like this.


Until next time

Sanctuary rework 2

 Greetings

I have done more work to the painting.

After the first day it looking like this.



I the added some flesh tones, including glazes of Burnt Sienna and worked on the shadowing of the floating scrolls with Paynes Grey.

I also did some work blending in the new clouds behind the blond angel. Thus will need more work, as the yellow is still showing through.

At the end of the second session the painting looks like this.


Until next time
