Last week I got the chance to work with a piece commissioned by Shea Kendall called Dementia:
This time I took a risk and used a color palette I haven’t tried yet, but that I’ve seen around very often, that I think it’s beautiful: Pink and Blue.
Started with the dress, since I have little experience painting fabric, but ended looking lovely.
Next was to decide what colors the skin should look like. I imagined this one with regular skin tones the whole time, but ended up with a pale blue and hints of red
It was going great great so far!. I love it how watercolors are so risky and with little space for error, this gets me very nervous. I imagine this is what tattooing feels like.
Started painting the Eyes and left some highlights, it was okay, but I actually liked it better with white eyes.
Went ahead and painted a bit of the hair with black acrylic and painted the horns, those where a bit tricky, and I didn’t want to add brown, or any other color that messed up the palette, I think it went down great.
Changed the Eyes back to white to get a more sinister look, that I really liked back when it was unpainted, and called it finished!
Make sure to check out Shea’s other work on her Instagram, she has some lovely pieces!
