    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.

    Filled in some shapes over the gold leaf.
    08.jpg

    More burnt umber. More shapes and textures were blocked in.

    Started adding colour with red ocher.

    Red ocher was used for the lips, dress and beads.
    11.jpg

    Yellow ocher was added in the skin tone, dress and beads.
    12.jpg

    The red- and yellow ocher was adjusted here and there and Payne's grey was used for the colour of the eyes. White, because if it's blue shift
    tendencies, was used for the whites of the eyes.

    And it's done.

    Ace painting Andre' I like the sbs and will have a look for some red Sarah paper or similar. It makes sense when doing portraits. Thanks for sharing.
