Starts with the underpainting- I usually use green or blue depending on a person's skintone
The background is really thickly spread paint to imply a thick stage curtain behind her
Next comes in the flesh tones and blocking in major areas of color
Next comes all the fun little embellishments of coins, beads, sequins, and medallions
It is so fun to be able to show you a subject right beside her portrait!
Here is Tara holding the painting of her.
Here is a photo of me with Shakti Dance Movement & the paintings of them.
