Hold still, this will only take a minute. "Nope!"Aug 27, 2023
09/13/23: Added 2.5B 6/6 to the graffiti borders. Here's a side-by-side of the blues, all at 6th value and 6th chroma, just to give you a sense of how the hues change as they progress.
090923, S6: Getting into some color and value adjustments in hair.
090323, S5: Began working in the actual underpainting colors. Today's was 5YR 2/6. Gonna go to a party now.
08/30/23, Stage 4: Third layer of 2.5Y 7/2. For any non-Munsell speakers, this is a low-chroma yellow that is closest to yellow-red (Orange!). The lower chroma will create a shimmery cloudiness and the shift from 5YR to 2.5Y will add hue shimmer to the effect. Take note of the end result, which appears to be a red-purple hue. That's what happens when layering 2.5Y 7/2 over 5YR at 8th chroma, apparently.
08/29/23, Stage 3: Second layer of Vasari Transparent Brown Oxide + Michael Harding Ivory Black. Trying to accomplish two goals here:
1. Shift values darker
2. Create the textures of his hair. Much easier to do at this early stage than further on. Much easier.
08/28/23, Stage 2: First layer of Vasari Transparent Brown Oxide. Tomorrow I'll add more, work on darkening the appropriate areas. This paint dries fast so I should be good to go.
08/27/23, Stage 1: Another attempt at having enough courage to entirely ruin a painting, or make something new out of it.
