Ruby June Confronting Coo-Thoo-Loo Charcoal Video

Posted on Oct 26, 2013 in Blog, The Amazing Adventures of Ruby June, Tutorials

Two more charcoals to go and it looks like I’m going to have to work on them both at the same time.  This one I started today and I decided it was high time I documented my process a bit more so I’m filming my work on this from start to finish for the value layer.  Because I’m filming at work, I will probably start on the last painting...
