This painting represents my next to last step in the transition to the Carder method. Here i have played it loose with the hair and just layed in a background without regard for what was actually there. I also took some liberties with the sweater, which I think turned out well. For the remainder I was really as true to the method as I could be at this stage of my development. I have mixed my own medium as described in DMP and mixed it with Winsor and Newton artists color. I also used some W&N Yellow Ochre instead of mixing my own and the background is W&N Indigo. I am really looking forward to using all this paint up so I can buy some Geneva paint. 12x16 prestretched canvas.
The photo was taken outside on a cloudy day at f/8, 1/250, ISO 400. The pic was cropped but not photoshopped. I hope you like it.
