Portrait of a Lady with Oil Colours

in #hive-1565094 months ago

This is a Portrait painting of a Lady named Mrs. Kate I have been wanting to make since 2018.
Every now and then the thoughts of making this portrait comes into my mind, months turned into years and I can't even tell how it's almost five years broooo!!
Like I just wanted to make this painting last month because the memory is still fresh, I feel so fulfilled after accomplishing this.

I roughly mapped out the shape of the face with brush using freehand, I sensed that it wasn't balanced so I redrew it.

I did my first colour block-in.
This stage, I only roughly decided how and where the nose, eyes, lips will be without attention to skin colour.

From this stage, I started working in layers. After painting a full layer, I will come back to it the following morning which makes the oil paints to get a bit dried and will make any colour application on the surface to be brighter. I will keep adjusting, calculating and relating the organs till I finally fix them right.



I will only move to any part of the body or start giving it a fitting background if only I have gotten a facial resemblance of my subject.
