Tortie – A Work in Progress – Photos #2 (Painting)

Work in progress. “Tortie” a commission painting. Acrylic on canvas 60cm x 60cm.

This is where I got to last time I blogged:

Progress has been made. Lightening the head a little, tweaking the neck area, rear of shell darkened a bit and toes lightened.

Reshaping part of the shell. I don’t like to do this once the dark lines have gone down but that part of the painting wasn’t quite working right.  Also started on the first layer of the background and a few more highlights on the head.

First layer on background finished (well, just the sides of  the canvas to do). The background colour in this snapshot is more blue than the real thing which is a sort of aqua blue/green.
