Summer is definitely here.
I always sleep at a later time because of the heat. So I had the urge to paint before turning in.
I decided to paint in summer's orange shade.
I started with a rough sketch of my subjects face.
And to speed things up didn't bother checking proportions.
I started with grey tones as base for the entire face.
Here's the final grey base. Paolo said he doesn't look like my subject...oh well!
I did it in less than an hour so that's a lot to ask(excuses!).
I finished it up with a an orange shade over paint(the first image) since I wanted it in a summer shade.
That's it for now I don't know if I'll still try to tweak it but there are so many mistakes I can point out.
I guess I will have to settle since I'm not even halfway done with the sketchbook.
I need some sleep!
btw, it's not the weekend yet and I'm already posting...I'm having a need to rush post a lot lately!
