I had a lot of fun making this one, a whole afternoon painting without interruptions, and full of discovery and adventure.

 

It’s a new palette that I was lucky to stumble upon, the main color is made of a custom shade I mixed, taking Ultramarine + Chinese White, then adding Orange, then a but of Burnt Sienna, and a bit of more Ultramarine.

I made a little mockup of the painting, and it looks lovely.

So excited about making this one, it’s been a while since my last painting, and this one became the one painting that has taken me the most to finish.

 

The Mother of Dragons in the image of Emilia Clarke and to celebrate this month release of the new season of Game of Thrones.

First Conclusion after finishing this piece is, I need a White Gel Pen ASAP, honestly, I can get away with fine details on the eyes, using acrylic paint and a thin brush, but when it comes to long thin lines on the hair, the pencil and paint becomes awkward, either bold, or with not enough paint.

Second thing is, I finally got the grips about how to make a beautiful red color for the lips, one that I’ve been using from a Crayola Palette, but never was able to mix by myself, the trick is, to simply add a bit of Orange to Brilliant Red, and then maybe a little black.

This new method of painting in detail throughout the canvas is suiting me quite well, i have to admit it’s quite advanced, and leads to inconsistencies in terms of color, sometimes I forget what color mixed I used on one eye, for example and use a slightly different one on the other.

Unfortunately this time I screwed up, and deleted most of the WIP pictures I took while painting.

I had a lot of fun making this piece, there’s no particular reason I did, but it came as a coincidence that Kurt’s birthday was last month, but still a coincidence, I’ve been wanting to make this one since ancient times and I finally did.

Most people might not realize that over the past weeks I’ve started painting in a whole different way, although the end result might look similar. Usually I approached my paintings going from light to dark, painting all parts of the whole image, and then a darker layer over the whole image… you can see what I’m talking about in the making of David.

This time however you can see, that I began working fully on a specific area of the painting, the eye, and ended up with pretty much the final details, before I move on to the next area, usually I go from one eye, to the other, then the nose, the mouth, then the whole face and ears, and then the neck and chest.

before this I painted the full body, then the hair, and i was done.

Ever since I saw the first picture of her, I was amazed beyond any words. her name is Madeline Ford

That’s the image I based my painting on.

 

 

I started this painting like my others, three basic colors: Brilliant Red, Payne Gray, Burnt Siena and Skin Tone for the skin.

 

The hair, however, is a Salmon color that I discovered happily by accident, the mix is a combination of Brilliant Red, plus Burnt Siena, and Alizarin Crimson.

this combo gave an excellent Salmon tone to the pigment which ended up looking awesome on her skin.

 

for the freckles I used a simple loaded brush and taped my hand, letting the droplets hit the paper, and then quickly erased the ones that fell out of the skin area.

 

Check out the full timelapse of the painting:

Today I painted one of the most beautiful images I’ve found of a female nude.

If you have observed my paintings for a while you will notice a trend of color palette.

 

Payne’s Gray, Brilliant Red and Flesh Tone is the one I’m currently obsessed with, Payne’s Gray on the deep shadows, going to brilliant red on the midtones and lastly a bit of Flesh tone on the Highlights.
