Talar - New Face 2

    Newer Older

    My first ever attempt at a face up. I did it in two layers, one with pastel shading (most of which is lost to the camera) and the other with tube water colors (mostly brows and eyes).

    The original pastel only lips were very strongly colored so I toned them down a bit with paint in the next layer with "flesh tone" paint thinned to a wash and a bit of terracotta pastel patted on top.

    If you look hard you may actually see that I put in some pretty orange eyelashes too. Those were fiddly little bits to get in there....
