Hello Friends, i will show you my way of painting this picture of Poison Ivy. This is my first colored portrait painting and I hope you give me some feedback and critics. The guide will contain images of both try. I like every kind of contrast, B/W is my favorite but red and green is also attractive! During the research for my „Batman Hood“ I found this picture of Poison Ivy. (and I fall in love) I thought it would be useful to begin with black like in my B/W pictures. So I made a stencil of paper for the darkest areas. I spray this orientation layer with black. The backside of the stencil was prepared with a pencil for transfer. After this I start with „Hautton“ Schmincke Colors and map the face. Then I added the eyes and lips with green, black and Krapprot.For the hair I first painted yellow to give the red more luminosity. A lot of daggers! Also the big flower in the foreground begins with yellow then “Krapprot” and “Preussisch Blau”. Krapprot and Preussisch Blau are transparents.
