Foray into Digital Figure Painting
Tonight was our painting session at my weekly figure drawing group. Even though I stayed up late last night priming canvases with every intention of doing a traditional oil painting... just before I left to go paint, I changed my mind and decided to grab my laptop and Wacom tablet. Low and behold, I actually had a blast. I tried approaching this as I would if it were a traditional oil painting by making and keeping my marks. I kept my edges in mind and tried to not render the details to death. I was keeping the wisdom of David Leffel in mind when making my marks. To have each stroke be a statement describing something and let it stay. I worked on only 1 or 2 layers and didn't undo anything. Hope you enjoy!
