Self-Portrait: Step 5 "Color"
Like I said before, the greyscale doesn't take too long. I wish the same could be said about color. Fortunately, in this case, I'm leaving the black lines to define the image, so I don't have to paint as tightly as I would if I used oils or acrylics. I've put in several hours of computer time and I still have a ways to go, particularly in getting the proper levels of ruddiness in my face. I pulled up the photo to compare images and I can see how beige I've been painting. If I make some dramatic leaps forward, I'll add more images; if not, I can turn this in for the poster and feel pretty good about it.
