This is so wonderfully done!!!
Upon first look (in the thumb view), I thought someone had used a picture of my youngest daughter as a reference...but in full view, I'm completely wrong...
You've really done well :) The skin tones are near perfect, and I just love the lock of hair falling in her face.

Thank you, if your daughter even resembles this little girl she must be a cutie! I loved painting this girl, those eyes and her hair where a treat.

Wonderful work! it feel so real and in some way soo freshand not overworked. amazing :D
which colours did you use for the skin?
Reply
:iconannagilhespy:
AnnaGilhespy Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2006
There are hints of all the following colours in her skin:
Titanium white
Lemon yellow
Cadmium yellow deep
Flesh tint
Scarlet lake
Burnt sienna
Burnt umber
Paynes grey
Terre verte

Skin is so translucent that this many colours are needed to make it look realistic. a basic mix of titanium white, burnt sienna, cadmium yellow deep and a tiny bit of paynes grey makes a good skin tone to start with, then I add hints of the others to create a realistic skin tone. The terre verte (green) was added because she has green light reflected from the foreground on her face and arms.

can you give me some advice on how to do hair on oil? Mine always looks so flat and fake. thanks!
Reply
:iconannagilhespy:
AnnaGilhespy Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2006
I had a quick look at your work and I see what you mean. You have the basic layers there already, all you need to do is buy a small thin but long brush, I think it is called a 'liner' or 'rigger'. It is much longer in length for its width in comparison with other brushes. This means that it can hold a lot of paint and make long thin hair-like lines. Use this brush to paint the little wispy hairs around the edge of the head and any highlights elsewhere. Also, you paint black hair a lot of the time so your colour does not vary a great deal - which makes it look flat; try painting blond, red or brown hair. Or even exaggerating the highlights that exist in black hair will help. You are almost there in your paintings you just need that last bit of detail. (don't try to paint the whole head with this brush, it will look very stange and take you way too long - just the last layer of highlights)
Hope that helps.

They where very dark in the photo, i tried to lighten them in the painting but it just didn't look right. I think she had been licking her lips or something. Thanks for the comment. Have a very creative 2007 [link]
