Cor­rect­ing mis­takes

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I feel like I’ve lost some­thing im­por­tant from my block­ing. It’s im­por­tant to con­stantly eval­u­ate the piece as a whole. The belly is now too am­bigu­ous and not mak­ing a state­ment. I de­cide to re­paint it en­tirely us­ing the Flat brush I made. I paint the lighter un­der­belly back in, catch­ing the light re­flected off the wa­ter and re-es­tab­lish­ing some of the lost scale pat­terns. I make sure that the lines and strokes de­fine the form of the side and belly. Us­ing pat­tern is a great way to do this, even with­out value. It’s a nice, large area to leave some ex­pres­sive marks and also helps to keep the sur­face alive and painterly.
