Last month, I was browsing through my old laptop's hard drive and I found this one psd file. It's an unfinished painting from November of last year and I apparently totally forgot about it. I can't recall why I left it unfinished, but most likely it's because I had no time for it due to work commitments and then eventually it slipped from my mind. I don't think when I started this picture I had any grand goal, meaning nor story for it. I just wanted to play with certain colour combinations, which in this case are bright aqua and blue as ambience colours and how they affect skin tones.
I used OpenCanvas to paint hair. I think OC works MUCH better than Photoshop in painting hair. I switched back and forth from OC to PS - OC for painting and PS for colour adjustment.
