Working out a tonal study of the back (reference photo from my stock photos) in Painter (pastels and conte). The shoulder blades (scapula) are a prominent landmark that shift with the upper arms. I keep moving shadow shapes so not yet satisfied with results; more work left.
Exploring the Charcoal & Conte media in Painter 12. The Real Hard Conte variant on the charcoal paper gives up a nice texture. (“Badu” is a rescue cat at the Friends in Felines Rescue Center which is featured on Ustream. I’m completing an iPad painting of her which I hope to complete soon.)
