Here is another attempt at a gesture painting along the lines of the Jeff Watts DVD I got last week. I tried to pick a reference photo that would be simple and allow for quick, gestural strokes. I think I overworked the hair a bit, but the rest of the painting came together the way I wanted it to. Again this was the Zorn palette of titanium white, ivory black, yellow ochre and cad red light. Actually, I lied right there. I don’t have any cad red light so this is cad red, which I assume is the medium version. Winsor & Newton doesn’t have a “light” version of this red.
