This isn't every step I took during the course of the painting but this gives you a good idea of how I got the end result.
|the original drawing was a sketchbook drawing of about 4x6 in size. I re drew her to fit the 16 x 22 paper. Why 16 x 22? no clue, it looked like a good size to me i guess.|
|The set up- water, spray bottle, a bunch of brushes, watercolor paint, paper towels, painters tape and Jim Ames Color Theory made Easy. It's been my watercolor "bible" for a long, long time.|
|I pretty much called the skin tones good for now.|
|so this is another several steps in, the previous photos I uploaded refused to cooperate and would not save in order.|
|.... Why wont it rotate... ???|
|Final image. (there is still some taped areas on the borders that I did not crop out of this photo)|
