Re: Need help finishing this up

I was thinking what would make this picture rise above the norm and take it up a level, and that would be trying to get the facial skin to glow. Getting the skin tones to glow has been a subject of challenge for artists for well over a century. But there have been artists who have set out to do this...

Re: Now you can advise the Moderator!

It is coming into being, and will look better when you draw it up finer, and put in the relevant shadows, best done transparently and lightly by glazing.

Re: Acrylic or Oil

They should be seen as additional materials of expression, (or an ad...
