Black and White

It was interesting to play with different strengths of black pigment in this painting.

This is acrylic on paper. I used my new brush for this one. It's from a company called Hwahong. It's number 10. It was actually kind of interesting how I was able to play with different strengths of pigments by using a lot of water to mix the acrylic and loading the brush, and then adding a heavier mix to the tip. This allowed a sort of two tone effect. In particular, I notice this effect from the eyebrows. I will like to play with that more in the future.

A few misses: the areola and nipple on the left is off from where it ought to be, and the breast ought to continue up a bit to form a better suggestion of shoulder. In any case, I kind of like this one.
