Red Riding Hood sketch for #PaintingDrama2 with #TheOatleyAcademy
I had a mini break through on this sketch. Typically when I work traditionally I mix myself a huge crazy palette, I don’t like mixing during much because I tend to get muddy. I prefer to have the selections made before hand as it affords me some security— what you see on the palette is what you’ll end up with on the canvas.
With digital one of the most frustrating things is how many opportunities you have to “stray” from the path (okay— one tiny red riding hood joke).
On this one you’ll see my swatches that I based the palette on, and then I also included the palette that I mixed pre paint. I only used what I could pick from this area. I was SO tempted to grab some more yellowy greens, but I managed to fight the urge;)
As a result I really enjoyed myself and didn’t have to worry much about falling off the rails of my established color scheme!
Do you have any tricks to keep yourself on track when painting? I’d love to hear about them! Comment below or find me on twitter @elyjenna
