Not sure about this – I love bits of it (the shadow being under the paint is great) but I think perhaps it wasn’t the best picture to try. Probably need something far ‘grittier’. But I do like the idea of a grisaille underneath. I have heard that using a red film over the colour photo gives a good idea of the values. Has anyone else heard of this? Does it work? I cheated and turned the photo into greyscale before printing it out!
Busy doing other (real) work at the moment, the visitors have started to return and we have landscapers working outside at the moment – so I am having to make endless tea and coffee!! All cuts into painting time!
