Back – study tones

Mairi Budreau - Portrait Artist

I traced the drawing onto a toned canvas and then put in the lights and darks. I missed the objective of keeping hard edges – a graphic look – instead jumped ahead into some blending. I couldn’t help myself! Blended is the nature of this image and jumping ahead is the nature of me.
I used umbers, yellow ochre and black.
