|"Dame Maggie Smith"|
The following is what we did in the sixth and seventh weeks of the winter term, 2022 in my "Watercolor Portraits" class (my online Zoom classes with the Art League School in Alexandria, VA).
I worked on "Dame Maggie Smith",
picking up where I left it off last week. The left side of the face in
generally warmer and lighter; the right side, darker and cooler. I showed you how to paint wrinkles, not as lines but as long shapes, softening them as I went along.
These wrinkles must go in when all the planes/structures have been
painted to satisfaction. Additional details never make a painting.
