• Watercolour, acrylic and coloured pencil on paper.

So I finally got around to finishing her. Failed attempt at going 100% traditional. I think Photoshop has forever spoiled me because no matter what I did, I couldn’t get the effects I wanted using watercolour anymore and had to resort to blocking out the background in bronze acrylic paint to cover up the mistakes.

I had originally overlaid textures to it to jazz it up, but it was starting to look messy to me, so I went back to the pre-Photoshop scan. Oh well. Lesson learned. Next time, smaller paper and no painting when tired.
