For Todays painting I knew exactly the sort of pose I was looking for ( unusual for me) having watched the film ‘ the girl with the pearl earring’ AGAIN! I was on the hunt for a lady wearing a turban. I went straight to Sktchy, and typed turban into the search bar, after about 10 minutes I found the photo that was just the sort of thing I was looking for. I wanted to give the painting a more aged, vintage look, not a problem with the number of Browns I use with my furry creatures. I do love working in Browns, 😀. I was really happy with this, the only thing my head is debating about is, should I make the background dark? I kind of wish I had, and I still could, but I could also ruin it in the process, feeling torn, grrr. I might re visit this painting and start afresh, as I would also like to paint her on some old paper, or maybe find another image to do this with? Who knows tomorrow is another day for a different challenge.
