Celestial Practice 1: Old Masters Palette



I got a new book of art stuff, "Color and Light" by James Gurney and I want to practice some with it. Who knows how far I'll actually get but even a little practice doesn't hurt. I figured I could basically do a whole bunch of pictures of Celestia so I could get my practice in with my favorite princess!

So the first practice was old master's palette. I have some experience with this years ago with oil painting, so it was a great refresher and something I should've tried to do digitally a LONG time ago. The violet in her eyes is the only thing you can't make with an earth tone palette, but considering she is royal, it's historically accurate to use a little bit of expensive blue pigments, even for an informal portrait like this. The composition is definitely modern though.
