Well I didn’t get to do any work on the painting today. I have been eyeballing it though, and the one mistake I feel I made was not getting the figure larger on the canvas. My measurements were slightly off and I committed to drawing the head way too early in the process, which made the rest of the figure too small in the frame. So I think I have two options: start over and draw it again, or look into removing the canvas from it’s stretcher bars and restretching it onto shorter bars so I can remove the excess canvas. I like the second idea better because it took me 8 hours or more to draw it and I don’t want to do that again.
If you’re interested, the video is 12 minutes long, but it’s me drawing on the canvas from yesterday.
