Painted Sketch - Day 17



Instead of using colored paper, I painted over gray paint. This allowed me to do some blending in the background.

The subject matter? I did this quickly and just let it happen. Maybe you or I can make up a story about it. That would be fun.

I was going to ask you for the story behind the painting. I was thinking maybe "death on her shoulder". Maybe she is a cancer patient or a cancer survivor? Maybe I am just a little to morbid?

Nice mood in the painting :)

Lovely rendering and shading. She's got aloof down-pat, seems totally undisturbed by Death. :)

That's a good idea - using a medium value to start out! Very interesting: the skeleton looks more animated than the woman!
