So I figured for Halloween, I'd talk about something that I fear! Well, it's not a fear, but it's something that I have to work on. It's all about NOT being timid when it comes to getting darker and more accurate values painted in a bold fashion. For whatever reason, I have trouble jumping to accurate darks, but the darks are vital to the beauty of a painting. I just painted a small oil study to work on this issue. Being rough and strong in the values and with the paint is a crucial step that I'm taking from now on in my work.
