Two Joans, Day Two
This is the first wash for the traditional approach. All is still light and loose, I'm trying to remember to paint through boundary lines instead of staying in the lines as though it is a coloring book; this helps to unify things and keep the figure from looking pasted onto the ground. I can see that, other than skin color, I don't have much of an idea where I'm going colorwise, except that it will be warm temperature. I also will be working toward a "low key" use of values/ tones, which means the darker end of the scale.
There is no companion image for the other approach, that gets done all in one go. No stages. Tomorrow for that.
