I’ve got another painting going as well. This one is a 24″ square composition of Kayti and her amazing tattoos.
Here’s the initial wipeout. I think the support didn’t get enough drying time before I started in on this layer so some of the paint areas didn’t wipeout as cleanly as I would have liked. That said, I’m starting to trust myself more and understand that I just need a few general markers to start from.
Here it is starting to block in the paint areas. I think I’ve got a good tone for the pigmented skin but really this is going to be a lot of work and I haven’t even started on the actual portrait yet.
