This was my 2nd painting today. The first attempt just wasn't working out. Here is the critique I wrote on the back:
I fixed the drawing. I think I'm getting closer. Making the shadow a different color was a bad idea. I used layering techniques from "Expressive Painting" by Anne-Marie Esson. Didn't mix my color correctly from the start. My white reflection spots look silly.
I am going to attempt this same drawing tomorrow using the Expressive painting technique from the beginning.
I actually tweaked my drawing again tonight. I think I've finally got it!!
