Been a little frustrated lately with the painting. I decided to revisit the idea of "massing in". Having years of drawing (and a fascination with the pencil), I tend to be a little over devoted to line. This is one of the challenges I face with painting, and one of the reasons that I started painting. I really wanted to learn how to build an image with shapes of light and dark.
Above you see a digital sketch, done on my Nintendo DS, without lines, only massing in. I can't quite put it into words, but there is more for me to learn here. This sort of exercise is going to help me with painting, I can just feel it!
