Starlit Bovine by Norma Wilson

Starlit Bovine

24" by 24"

Available Through Gallery

Week one of my my class, Working In A Series with artist Lisa Call.  To begin this piece, I first did an underpainting of random acrylic colors.

Then I did a loose quick drawing using white paint.  And in the next phase began finding all the dark values.  I used a mixture of sap green and alizarin crimson for the background.  I left some of the acrylic to show through in places which added interest.

At this point, I usually forget to continue taking pictures because I get really into it!  I start to work the midtones and some of the lights to develop the sense of light that I love to capture.  

I am loving how much I am learning in this class and look forward to sharing more paintings in my series.  Hope you have a great weekend!
