Chloe portrait in progress 10
In full swing with all my pencil colors out for pale-blue sky reflections on the river, the river-water colors and reflections of the cliff rocks and plants. In the far right corner of my worktable the browns and oranges of Chloe. And all my tools of my work.
When I paused to take this picture I was putting in the golds and greens of the river below the blue-sky reflections on the left side of the artwork, working my way across toward the right. Some of it is the reflection of golds and greens of plants growing on the rocks…as I work my down towards the bottom of the painting, more and more of it will be the stones on the bottom of the river showing through the clear water.
