My previous post on this painting was on August 18 and you can read that here /pjcook.blogspot.com/2010/08/painting-seascape-of-two-girls-playing-at-the-beach.html. As you can see here I am continuing to refine the painting, adding more and more detail. While painting I always keep in mind where my light source is. In this painting the light is coming from the right side of the canvas.
In this closeup of the girls notice how I keep the highlights and shadows consistent with the light source. This is important if you are looking to create form in the figures. So remember to keep the light source in mind throughout the entire painting. I will be working on this painting this week and should have it finished soon so check back to see how it progresses.
