Quick light study from reference.
I experimented a lot in this piece, not only with color and light but also with brushes. I am used to painting with a standard round brush or an oval one if I'm feeling fancy, but in this one I only used rectangular textured brushes and I surprisingly really liked painting with it.
Critiques are very welcome
Edit: since so many people are referencing Nad4r
work, I want to make clear, I didn't use her work in any way, we just happened to use the same picture as reference: 68.media.tumblr.com/c7c4cf72dc…
