Color and texture are also things I explored in this painting. In the flesh tones I used "non-local colors." A non-local color is a color such as a blue or a purple in the flesh tones that you wouldn't ordinarily expect to find there.
The brush work and textures are designed to emphasize the direction of the planes of the muscles and other parts of the body. I'm hoping that the brushwork is kind of calligraphic and adds to making the figure feel real and have volume.
In the background, I began with thin coats of a warmer gray then went over the next layer with a brush and the last layer is a kind of "skip coat" using plastering knives to create a more tangible and thicker coat in a lighter tone.
