Here is a detail pic of some of what we did today. I brought out a lot of the detail in the coat and some in the table as well as behind Rotwang.

Monochromatic Roughs

Filed in Leave a comment

This is a series of photos of my tracing paper roughs from my sketches. The photos aren’t the best in the world, but they do give you the idea of the overall shapes of the painting. It is a high key painting, meaning that tonally the it is very light. This is due to the lightning, rings, and other flashing lights in the laboratory, making the shadows that are dark pop out of frame, giving the piece depth. My plan to to dull the colors as they recede into the distance to hint at atmospheric interference from the electricity. ¬†Below are some details from the roughs.
