I wanted to show the stages that this piece went through and the build up of layers.
First , after gesso I scraped colour onto the page with palette knife. Next, I sprayed through a stencil with Dylusion inks.
I drew my image in Stabilo black and dry brushed the shadows in umber (Dina's paint).
Next I went over most of the umber with Sky blue paint, still dry brushing and then cross hatched with Lemon and added magenta lips and sky blue eyes.
I added some tangerine to the face and then highlighted the face with white. I played with colours in the hair and redrew lies with my stabile pencil.
Finally I drew through the hair lines of Portfolio pastels.
