acrylic master study

Alla Prima by Richard Schmid is an amazing book on painting. I suggest any painter to check it out.

Did a master study of one of Schmid’s works. Was trying to focus on values and edges in this study as much as I could. Values and edges work together and one is affected by the other just like value and colour is. Was doing a lot of squinting to see which edges were sharp and which were soft, and how I could blend certain values and edges together to create unity.

I spent a total of 2 hours on the picture. 8×8 cotton canvas.
