Still waiting for the illustration boards to dry so I can sand them and transfer my drawing. Speaking of the drawing, I went out with the camera and took some reference photos for the painting of the Hardheads. I have removed the color from the photo so that I can get a nice accurate drawing without being overwhelmed by the green color. Also, when I get ready to paint them, I will do this again. The greens in these leaves are way too bold and I don't want it to overwhelm my painting. I will reduce the intensity of the hue and lower the value when I paint them.
