Black and White Red Head--Mid Term
This week we are at the mid term at PAFA and I had to do two paintings for my class with Reene Foulks, the same painting on a black toned canvas and a painting of the same subject on a regular white toned canvas to see how the toned canvas effected the overall color but especially the skin color. I choose to work for a picture I snapped of my friend Alina in the car at night and use her as the subject because I thought having the red hair would make a great accent to the painting. The second painting was the one on white which I did much faster than the one on black, that one took a second sitting to charge more color on as the dark canvas sucked it down. Both paintings were under 3 hours in execution.
