And I thought Chuchy's hair was a workout! So, now I've started on the hair. . . . again, just straight forward painting, it's good to know your brushes and what they can do for you, which ones will hold lots of water, which ones are more stiff and will "draw" with paint for you. I'm keeping one thing in mind . . . as soon as I finish this step, more chocolate! ! ! ! Ok, not really but it's great incentive! Oh, technique? um, I put water down in the area then float some color into it, push it around, remember shape, lights and eventually darks.
Colors I'm using for the hair is New Gamboge, Permanent Rose, Burnt Sienna, accidentally dipped into the last bit of Ultramarine Blue (you may notice some grayish tone in the upper left area) and some Burnt Umbar.
I also did some work on the skin tone, punching up some of the warm areas with New Gamboge, cooling down the shadowy area with Permanent Rose (I stayed away from the Cobalt Blue this time) and a little more Burnt Sienna.
Now it's time for Chocolate! More soon!
