This is the finished colour study assignment for week 1 of Painting Drama 2 at the Oatley Academy. I think I experienced the full spectrum of emotions during this, as I pushed hard not only to up my game on colour observation from reference, but also on brush technique and texture control. Painted mostly on 1-2 layers, with a hard tipped bristly brush in Photoshop – no texture overlays allowed!

I stitched a couple of my WIP images into another animated GIF – quite enjoy these!
