Here is the dreary girl that I started last week, her name is Brenna.
As always the initial sketch, getting ideas in place.
Putting in the darkest areas using Paynes Grey
Adding colour to the coat, umbrella and boots. Once the colour was dry I added a layer of metallic glaze followed by a layer of gloss glaze.
Now for the raindrops.. and the eyes..
I filled in the background with Wedgewood blue, leaving ridges in the paint. I decided it was a little dull so added a thin wash of purple over it.
I then added some lines using the edge of a ruler dipped in violet paint, liking the raindrops.
I then added a few more dots between the rain.. and added the splashes into the puddles.
Now to add a little shading and outlining...
I am really pleased with this one..
See how the metallic glaze and gloss glaze really shine..
