    Cameo

    I made this experiment and got a promising way to make a very fast chiaroscuro study by means of a simple, but effective tonal sketch.
    The process is quite simple and is all on the same layer.

    I used only half thick oil (square and some round brush on the draping) and hard knife at low pressure.
    1. First You draw the dark background.
    2. Then You outline with a light color the areas and figures and trace some line for the drapery folds directions too.
    3. Now You fill the areas with oil in a light tone going more or less from the light source direction down.
    4. You use then the knife from the opposite side and more or less the same direction. Then some more curved blending fo transition and suggestion of curves by figuring out and following the body and draping geometries also as suggested by what Your mind think to see.
    Final touches as You wish or feel necessary.

    What I got is a sort of Coops-like dancing figure style in 10-15 minutes. I could obviously change the color of the darkest part by just filling an additional hue.

    I hope You may find this experiment and approach interesting.

    Cesar - cool. I like it!.... i personally have no skill at figurative work but i appreciate it greatly. I really like your treatment of the head and neck area, no overly defined and very graphic. I think it would make a nice cover for a fashion mag...

    All of it beautiful dear Cesare, and I too am taken with the blue and satiny effect around her.

    That's really good, Caesar! Think I'll try this once this cold has left me.

    Good idea and approach...thanks for sharing
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.
