Here are small practice paintings that I worked on yesterday. Each is about an inch or so big. I was trying to focus on having a strong contrast between the lights and darks. It is something that I struggle with and am trying to improve on. I think that the stronger the contrast between values, the better it looks. The top two are copies of Gil Elvgren and the catwoman is my own. I can see that mine lacks the strong contrast and I need to push this further in my work.
