Freaky Woman

Painting from last week. There was some lovely brown paper in the class so I worked on that, the colours came out totally different on it to usual and it was actually very hard to get warm skin tones on it, hence the weird white gobliny creature I ended up painting! I'm going to fill in the background with colour so she's not floating in space so much, we'll see what kind of difference that'll make.


  1. I actually really like how the colours came out!It has a lovely, slightly stylised look to it.Maybe just a bit of shadow would help to ground her a bit?

  2. Thanks for the tip! I'm a bit lost with where to go with it so that's really helpful. I like the colours as well I think, i'm varying between liking it, and thinking it's really ugly, but maybe it's the ugliness I like?! I'll put a shadow underneath her, and maybe a dark purple-ish curtain behind her, not cover the background, but just a panel of colour behind her, I could always try it out in photoshop first I guess!
