Painting an Arm in Shadow

I spent the whole two hour session painting an arm in shadow, and not even the entire arm. It was difficult to get right.

There are so many subtle vale and color changes that I’m seeing throughout the skin of this model that I’m taking a lot of time to do anything.

I’m glad that I’m not getting bored of this same painting for so long. I remember that I was struggling with that last year. Now I’m looking at all the small details and getting excited about every part of the painting.
