I’ve started working on a drawing and value study for a small, monochromatic figure painting.

I draw a lot, but it’s been a long while since I’ve painted anything. The overall pose was taken from a blurry photo that I found online. From there I did a compositional study, and then an anatomical study. In the value study I’m still experimenting with the background. I haven’t yet decided what the background environment will be. I’ll add to this post as the work develops.
