Native American Lady, stage 2 and 3
Hi guys as promised here is my Native American Lady in progress. First of all I cut my sketch out and stuck it onto my canvas. Then glued some tissue paper around her. I cut her top out of the sketch as I thought it would look better painted on a canvas as it would be made out of canvas.
Then I painted her face and background, over the glued tissue paper in acrylic. I want to add lots more detail to this and give her some beads around her neck and perhaps something to the background not sure yet. I also feel that by painting over the sketch I lost some softness to her look so I'm going to try adding some shade and light to her face and hopefully soften her up a bit......I'm hoping to finish it tomorrow!
