Hey guys, I feel a little selfish here, I don't think I have a lot to help others as I am trying to get where I fell good about my paintings. When I first saw Marks site, I thought I knew a lot about what I was doing. I have since learned a bit about what I don't yet know. I thought I was pretty good, but you can't be very good and be lacking so much information. I have learned so much from Mark's vidio and AZ's comments. Thanks so much to you guys and all the others who comment. Mark said "Just match the color and put it where it goes." Wow, I am still trying to do that. And then there is the part about matching the color. I am so struggling with that. I worked with black and white photos as I started with Mark's method and decided to try a color picture to have something to match. I seem to have a great underpainting and have no idea why I can't get to a finish. Are my shadow areas to much of a contrast. or just the wrong color. please help, Thank you all, keep it up.
