Work in progress on the sloth painting (a commission for @theaardvark)
Acrylic on box canvas 40cm square.
So here’s how it looked last time:
More work done on the face:
Second layer on the background – a glaze of purple bringing in a more blue tone than the first layer which was magenta:
A third layer with the purple glaze this time toned down a little:
Unusually a fourth background layer – a slightly more magenta purple toned down again and with a light dry brush application:
Thinking the background may need to go more magenta to balance better. But will sleep on it and look at it fresh the next session. Not quite sure how that’s going to work out but it needs to be right.
