More on Cinder
I haven't been posting as often as I intended to, but here's the state Cinder's portrait had reached as of a couple of weeks ago. I found myself surprised that Cinder's body color needed to be fairly pinkish - even though I knew my beginning colors were way brighter than they should end up. I painted this color on her body, thinking, "Nah, that can't be right..." Then walked away; and a few days later, just glancing at the painting as I walked by, thought, "Yeah - I think that's going in the right direction, after all!" So it goes...
I also worked on the light and shadow of the window seat, and did some work on the window frames. I'm liking how luminous the shadows are looking.
