Aub and Zuuku
This is Aubrey and her black cat. I have such a hard time with both the painting of people and all black things. So this was a worthy challenge for me in the pets and their relationships with people series.
I wonder how many people have black on their palette? I never have.
Here is what I have learned so far:
I grabbed some tips from Diane Mannion's blog yesterday. She explained glazing in a way I could finally understand. Her post can be seen here HERE
I used some of those ideas to build the black of the cats fur.
The other thing I have learned is to consider the temperature of a hue. It is a bet like trying to figure out what kind of mood another person is in. You almost have to feel it .I don't have a handle on this yet but it is a thing to keep in mind and consider.
