Hi folks, I've been studying how to paint eggs recently as a method of studying how light falls on a rounded object which naturaly led me on to, dont laugh..
A wip from photo ref, this is about four hours in.
It's an initial lay in, as broadly and painted from as far back as possible, the values of the tones are not 100percent there yet but they suffice as landmarks for the underlying skeleton/muscel systems.
The brush strokes after this to be renderd "across the forms" as WIlliam Whitaker advises to render more skulpturally. A correct value range and bounced light being the primary focus of this exercise. I hope to get back to her soon..
