I painted a mango. I could push the highlights a bit more on the upper right, right at the edge of the mango, but I don’t think I really need to, as it is it’s fine and the best thing I’ve painted all week. Now I’m torn between just stopping here and calling it good to end on a high note or if I should go onto grab some fruit from the table and paint that.
I don’t know D:
I know I pass better than this but I just can’t seem to fix my fucking eyes. Also I think my ear is still a bit high and the whole thing might be skewed to the right by a hair. It still reads mostly fine when I flip it though. The nose seems a little wide and flat and the outside boundary of my face needs to be adjusted.
Progress so far. I’m thinking I’ll work in layers for this, at least two, as it is right now, I can’t really add the kind of leafyness what I want to because any paint I add just gets blended in. I’m also worried about the figure not reading well, but I think that’s down to the rendering of the figure. It’s going to be interesting to try and keep it a warm neutral gray while also including the influence of all this green surrounding it.
