pink background experiment
This quick morning study is an experiment with a colorful background, in this case pink. The first paint strokes were difficult to read because they slid around on the rather smooth surface and the skintones were the same sort of color and value as the background. But I think it got better with thicker paint. I had a dark shadow color at first, but in the end I wiped it out and let the pink show through. Definitely an uncomfortable choice.
