Karen Jurick posts the most incredible pictures for us to paint on her challenge blog. The last one was of the airport travellers, which I did, and completed in time! I even put it up at a local competition and was placed 13th (out of 65) for it!
BUT, and it is a huge but, no matter where I stood, no matter how hard I tried, I just could not get the glare out of the darks on the photograph. Even with Dean's tips of indoors with a shield - nothing!
Ja,well,no,fine! as we say in this part of the world. This problem had to be solved somehow, because I really loved the pic.
So here it is, in charcoal! Black and white, no glary oil paint - maybe I'll try it in watercolour next!
