some examples of what she wanted us to do.... euan uglow:
my girls looked a little jaundiced, but a great exercise none-the-less. i can't believe how much became so much clearer to me in just one 4 hour class. she's remarkable that gillian iles.
these studies were quick and dirty, but i've been so inspired that i'm going to experiment all week with this lesson... see if i can make my skin tones less jaundiced and more 'natural' looking, and more variation in my shadows.
|seated pose #1|
yellow + red = orange, plus white to create three slightly different tones
red+blue = purple for the darkest darks
|seated pose #2|
yellow + white + red = lights
red + yellow = orange + white = mid tones with some dark added
red + blue = dark purple = darks
yellow + blue = green added to the dark purple for variation in shadows
oy. so much to learn. so much to remember. a little overwhelming, but soo exciting.
