This is my second session with the Penrod paintng. As you can see, I have begun to add some color, especially on the hat and shirt. I did some research on "knickers", and changed the drawing a bit to create folds in the pants. At this point in the painting, I am not sure how I will be developing the background. There is a strong light source coming from a window, however, do I want to paint the window??? I want to keep the focus on young Penrod, so will probably keep the background fairly simple. Painting is not only about color and brushstrokes, but constant "problem solving". And that CHAIR!!! Why did I photograph my model leaning against a modern day chair!!!!
