Carlos - tonight's painting exercise
It's so good to finally be done with that massive project that took up 7 months of my life!! Now I intend to do a bunch of quick exercises. This was totally freeform, starting from a really loose rough tablet sketch. An important thing I learned (to late) on the last project - the color picker will only give you pure colors (plus greyed versions of them). So I started the painting by picking a bunch of pure colors and blending them at around 50% opacity right on the canvas, then I picked from the mixtures. Worked mostly with really big hard brushes at near 100% opacity.
