Today’s session was all about experimentation, I know the painting doesn’t look like it changed much though.
I worked mainly in the shadow area with a medium that I have had laying around for a long while. Neo-melgilp by Gamblin. I’m trying to achieve a noticeable amount of transparency in the shadow areas and in the light areas of the skin eventually.
So far I’m not very convinced that what I’m doing is making any difference at all. But at the same time I’m getting a lot of glare on the painting so maybe I will see the difference after a few more sessions and a lot more layers.
