Today, we’ll go slowly with this step. I tackle my first washes in the hands. I’ve already titled the painting “Light Hand”, and Trina’s hands are the focal point of the piece. I want to really spend some time here, since they are so integral to the painting.
I also add some Burnt Sienna to her hair. The hands are a mix of Burnt Sienna and Alizarin Crimson. I lean a bit to the Sienna side.
Take your time and concentrate on this important phase of the painting. We’ll accomplish more tomorrow.
