PRESENT NO. 5 + ANOTHER PORTRAIT STARTED
Finished up with a silvery green bow using Jade Irridescent pigment (from Daniel Smith). It has a nice shine you may not be able to see in the photo.
And figured it was time to do another portrait so just picked through some photos I've had lying around and chose this one. Started it using just the 2 colors I used for pouring the River Rocks painting = Cerulean Blue + Rhodonite Genuine.
(In the photo I used as reference, the girl is looking down so she's got a huge forehead and tiny chin so I shifted it a bit to straighten it - we do this naturally when we draw, seeing things more head-on than tilted).
Now I'll have to add in some warms.
