    Tess M - Composition 1.1

    1.Cleopatra 1h

    I chose this piece for the lightning and figure, I love how Waterhouse drew women. I have to admit I spent alot of time setting the composition with lines, I struggled with the placement of the figure and the objects surrounding it. I spent too much time on the face I must have retouched it 3 times.
    The balance of values works really well with the darker background, white dress and the darker details surrounding it, I tend to worry more about the anatomy and the expression so this was a good exercise to focus on clothing and lightning. I still got long ways to go to get out of my comfort zone

    Took 1 hour, the emphasis is clearly on the helmet, but I cant help to admire the way Rembrandt painted the face without many details, only focusing on shapes
