This is another painting of the same highlighter. I'm starting to realize that painting something with only mostly medium tones is really hard. There really wasn't much mass light and the shadow core is extremely subtle. Also the reflected light was also really hard to paint. I guess I haven't painted much subjects with this type of light. It's really frustrating because I felt like I was actually improving and then I started painting again not long ago and I feel that I'm struggling again. Maybe I just need to paint objects in more of this type of light to get used to it. The transitional light is tough to get right to me.
