Thursday night life painting 03/18/10

Thursday night session went well, pretty happy with the results.  Worked on the background a bit more before starting the figure, and went in with opaque color on the figure to begin with rather than building up my tones slowly.  I feel this better utilizes the point of digital media to do quick opaque paintings, focusing on color and shape more closely rather than a slow build up of tones an value.  Finished this up in 2 1/2 hours.

Went to Dorman St. again afterwords, met this couple from NY and won 3 games of pool against the husband, think his name was Josh?  Nice people.
Good night.
