first life painting of the year!

Tried out this new method of using acrylics and it looks alright?  Supposed to start with a watery layer and work upwards., sort of like oil's fat over lean rule. I found it difficult to control the brush shapes when I did this. An unexpected side effect was that the colours all look pretty cold until I got to the thicker layers. Haven't painted life figures at all during the summer, my brain needs to go back into processing shape, which I'm still depressingly poor at.  FINALLY gotten the rest of the sketches scanned in today.Whoop.

The entire process of getting ready for a flight is fascinating. And the interior of the plane itself is full of blending weird curves. Plus:  H√§agen-Dazs  ice cream. Of which coffee is one of the 3 original flavours. :)
