Another portrait, different skin tone series
The original reference photo has gingham checkered blouse. I started painting the squares individually, but who am I kidding right? I just don't have the time, between juggling with hamlet and my house chores. hahaha,
So I kinda "suggested" the check with this effect and just hope for the best!
The technique for this portrait is mainly ( patience?? ) glazing and layering of colors to achieve the one color of the skin. So I started using red, yellow and eventually to darken the skin, violet hue ( mixed)
The hair is a bit challenging too but I think I did a pretty good job.
Till my next post.. don't know what to paint yet but I know an inspiration will come to me eventually.
