sad painted girl

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.

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Wow, expressive portrait. Nice to see the progress too.

  2. Wauw wat ontzettend gaaf Han! Zo goed hoe je op deze manier inzicht geeft in de manier waarop jij te werk gaat. Dit is prachtig lesmateriaal voor leerlingen van het voortgezet onderwijs. Heel educatief! Way tot go. Liefs Heleen.
