Diane Mannion, Another Visit, 10x8" oil on linen
#7 of the 30/30 Challenge... a bit behind!
A Painting Revisited
Painted this little girl a few weeks ago but thought I could take it in another direction and try again. Used the same reference material in a class I taught yesterday.
First version. Happy with it but wanted to push the color, composition, and girl's stance.
Diane Mannion, Waffling Waver, 12x9" oil on linen
My pencil sketch with marker lines indicating movement and dynamic directions for composition.
Underpainting with Indian yellow/Transparent Orange Oxide toned linen. Ultramarine and orange oxide made a neutral ocean blue/green.
This is how the demo sketch looked at the end of class. Really liked the underpainting showing through in the sky and water.
The final painting again. Like it more than the first version!
