Mary Demo


This time I tried to make the background an important part of the finish, rather than just an aid to tonal decisions.

The head grows from the umber surface and the underpainting is much more visible than before.

  1. I think you achieved your goal. I really like how the light is infused through the entire painting. I think that ties the background in with the subject in a beautiful way.
