I started this a week or so ago, and just couldn't get it. Warmed up with another session on it...figured I can take it to Tim for some rescue tips. It is a bit better, but definitely not 'done'.
First session. Pretty much all the same value, xcept for some darks. Doesn't look anything like a rainy day in Paris...
darkened the foreground a bit by glazing, which made the reflections some better.
Will let you know what Tim recommends.
Now for the fun. Yeah, I know it is difficult to wrap your brain around, but Vicki did something just for fun. Erika had sent me her photo she sent in for the challenge, and I thought it captured her so well I'd just see what I could do with it. So, without further ado, here is her photo.
and just below that is the end of the day painting. and just below that is a slideshow showing the progress over the afternoon.
oh, China Doll aka Erika doesn't know about this yet!
