This was a painting made for a Willowing Fabulous Faces class on limited colour portraits.
I worked up a sketch that had pretty quirky facial proportions then added hair (I need to work on hair) and other embellishments including a rose and a scrolling design which is now mostly covered over.
I started by creating a background with watercolour and Inktense blocks (Love them!) then used my favourite stencil with gloss medium which created a resist.
I have added a fast forward video below.
I will have a new video to share with you very soon, it will be a step by step painting (with voiceover) of an xrayed flower for my January art journal calendar page. :)
