Two stages of the sad painted girl
1 In the first stage I wanted to leave a lot of the green under paint visible. The important things like the eyes and the paint on the face I wanted to translate in oilpaint. The challenge was how to keep the face spatial with the bright coloured make-ups on it and at the same time make the make-up on the face look spatial too.
2 The painting came at the point where it was to chaotic, to much detail all over. I had to make a choice to what had the most importance. I choose the area around the eyes nose and mouth and worked towards more depth by changing the colour and the light in the back.
