My hierarchy of painting importance
How can I improve the drawing
Not too bad on the drawing. The issue is the large arc of the banana. It seems like one of the hardest things to draw is the long slow arc in space. The perfect drawing of this banana continues to elude me.
How can I improve the values?
Wow, that yellow was way off. And the green at the top of the banana was much too dark also. It seem as though the brighter the color the hardest it is to judge its value correctly. This yellow I put down was so far off that I thought that Photoshop was doing something weird with it. But after some testing I concluded that Photoshop wasn’t lying, it is really too dark. I even look at the picture and the painting now and it still looks light enough… this is going to be a tough one.
