Find your subject and print it out. Tape it to your surface with tranfer paper between it and the surface. I chose red because it blends in nicely with the colours of portraits. A good trace will help a lot further down the process. Cut out the main subject and use it to block the overspray. Start with undiluted burnt umber in all the darkest areas. More burnt umber. And clean up that needs to stay clean. Used imitation gold leaf for the base of the earings.
