Pink Girl – working up a sketch

I’ve been working on this picture of a limited colour portrait which was part of a Willowing, Fabulous Faces lesson.

It’s going quite slowly as the facial proportions are a bit quirky and I had to use neutrals in order to attain the values needed for shading.

I used a stencil and clear gloss gel in the upper right corner then covered it with paint using a baby wipe, the decorative detail in the upper left is copied from a decorated lock I saw in the Victoria and Albert museum.
