Last night I got to put the first layer of acrylic wash on to Kity, my story character and muse.
I’m using transparent ‘shading gray’ by Golden, which is liquid and ink like, and high viscosity titanium white by Pebeo Studio. Works nicely I think. I’m not going near color until the structure is there.
Her body is not really long enough so I need to play with the foreshortening, though the effect works in general so I might just leave her be for now.
Art is all about making decisions and there are lots to make when dealing with figures!
I under-painted, sculpted, and sealed the paper with gesso primer. I’m using Boldmere from The Works, which is super cheap but does the job!
