Haven't posted much for a week or so, and not much activity gone on to be honest (due to work etc). So here's something i've been dabbling at for a little while.
I think I mentioned experimenting with the technique known as Other Source Lighting – where the lighting source comes from well, another place other than natural light – a while back. I'd been wanting to paint this fellow for ages, and I thought that the pose of the figure would lend itself to OSL quite well. So I lit the skull 'candle style' and tried to envisage where the light would fall and in what strength, and what colours the light would fade to. The figure isn't finished yet, but i'm quite pleased with the experiment. The photo was originally taken with a light background, would probably be best to set up the photo with a darker background when he is complete.
