|Here is the reference photo I’ve painted from for this.
This is my very willing model and muse who I use in a lot of my paintings.
|My line sketch transfered onto the velour|
|Working that left part of the picture towards the
right laying in background areas.
|Strengthening contrasts and adding the floor
details and shadows.
|Working from the back forward for the plants and dog.
Picking out the bits of highlighted sunlight.
|This plant was so fiddly! Quite a lot of use for the
pastel pencils and a paper stump for neatening edges.
|This is my finished painting which is 12″x18″.
The colours I worked with made the painting
more subtle than the original photo.
