    69. Day, February 1, 2019

    Today I started with the sampling of the edge of "Aksinja's" scarf!

    For start, I painted a thin border between the main surface and the ebdge.

    It consists of the main colors of the dark red area ...:

    The meaning of the exercise:

    Thus the main colors for the eye are "pulled" over to the edge - which prevents a later "biting" of the different colors ...:

    And next week again: "cucumbers" ...

    Have a nice weekend!

    Hi Martin

    Very nicely done on the edging ....

    The clothing of this young lady has been particularly detailed and for me it's worked well ...although I salute your dedication to the pattern...the colourful contrast between the 2 pieces is very definate

    Have a good weekend and bring those " cucumbers " out for next week

    I’d be thinking to really desaturate the orange towards the base..there is a bit too much flower but look as though the orange is a bunch of petals the red rises from..hope that makes sense and isn’t offensive. I read this every day..owe you the following as respect for your hard work

    No problem with your criticism - it is absolutely constructive! Thanks for that!

    At the end, when the pattern is finished, I will paint the shodows on it!
    And I'm going to do that with "Pompeiian Red" - that's a brown color that gently goes into red ...:

    [IMG]

    The effect will be something like you describe it ...
    (At least I'm planning / hoping that!)


    But tomorrow comes one last round of "painting patterns".

    I like mussini myself..think about their lazur brown oxide..transparent..might do the job with a touch of Pompeii added at the lowest edges..critique..not criticism..I try to critique..studying design, the crits were brutal..same as in bicycle racing..the crits hurt

    Altho Pompeii red is a red with fair bit of blue...wonder if more a sienna, or lazur orange deepened with your red

    Yep - I think I will make some completely different: a Cossack! :D

    It will be an officer of the famous "Wolves Division" led by General Shkuro...

    The dark red areas and the orange of the edge now fit together really well!

    I worked on the scarf for almost ten weeks - and when I see the end result in front of me, I have to say: every damn single hour was worth it!

    Have a nice weekend!
