Getting back to basics! Working on a series of anatomical studies. First up, hands! I spent quite sometime concentrating on the background. Building up texture and washes, before stripping areas back. I wanted the painting to appear fairly simplistic with blocks of colour, but all in all there are a lot more layers than would first appear.
Next up, I intend to work on a series of portraits using this style as my foundation. Hopefully the 'block' I have been apparently suffering is coming to an end? :)
