Stan Thumbnail Painting
I'm starting a new painting. This is it's little thumbnail painting that I did today so that I know the color scheme for the entire piece. I do think I'll darken the chin quite a bit though to give a greater sense of form to the entire face. Otherwise, this is what it will look like.
It is a tiny little painting that is 6in x 4.5in in size. The final piece will be 16in x 12in. I like to make my little painting the exact same scale as my big painting so that I can see what the tiny composition will look like.
