Part 3 of the K-Girl Series.
Line art done with a brush pen, then digitally coloured in Photoshop.
Process and details:
Various black and white figures done in charcoal, ink and pen, some mixed. Fashion catalogs provide a myriad of interesting and well composed collections of figures to practice some body drawing and playing with different media on A3 paper.
Oh my… What big teeth you have.
Perhaps not the most impressive painting ever, but I had the urge play with my large collection of paint brushes and fill the room with the smells of oil paint and turps again. This was more a practice than anything as I had a canvas to use which I’d painted over in burnt umber to hide the previous failed painting from earlier this year. I wanted to see what it’s like painting over such a heavy base coat. Not very easy it turns out, far too dark, especially for such a light skin over coat.
I chose an advert out a glossy mag to practice portraiture some more, biggest mistake was choosing one with visible teeth… don’t do it, especially if she has a huge gap. Fail, but at least the photos make this painting look more presentable haha.
