Colour practice of the beautiful Natalia Vodianova. Trying to start painting portraits directly in colours rather than grey scale. Very pleased with how this one came out, especially compared to my first attempt at colour portraits. Will probably go back to it and tweak bits and blend some more maybe at some point, but I spent ages on it and I like how it looks. Feel I learned more out of this one too.
Painted 85% of it in photoshop then took it into sai for the hair and blending. I cannot blend in Photoshop well at all,the airbrush destroys everything and the hard brush always leaves edges. Any tips?
