This weeks SOC Colours are red + red + metalic.
I wanted to do something that was a little different to previous weeks.
I have done canvas's for the past 3 weeks so I thought I'd have a go at a less textured flatter piece.
Mainly just to test if I can still paint.
I began with a sketch, yes, it's a dress, rear view this time.
I layered some red papers onto the design (two shades).
To give a tooth I gave it a coat of gesso, thinning it out in areas to reveal the paper underneath.
I found a couple of matching red aquatone pencils, and paints.
(Ok, a touch of clear texture paste happened to find it's way on the photo too. I just had to use it.)
I was a little distracted again, to be honest it doesn't take much and before I knew it the project was finished. Painted, splattered and a tad of texture paste.
Here a couple more close up photo's.
Hope you like this weeks project. Don't forget to pop on over to Twinkle twinkle like a star and check out every ones fab projects.
Here is another quick face.
I will keep practicing and hopefully will improve.
