This was a colour painting I did using thin washes of colour to build up layers, making up my own colour palette:
I started of with a measured drawing making sure everything was pretty much in proportion.
Then I started adding washes of colours that I thought I would like. This was the hardest part for me; I thought I wanted pastel pinks and purple, but then decided that muted purple and blues would create more suitable mood.
I was quite happy with how it turned out.
The next thing I would like to try is naturalistic colours, maybe one built up in washes like this painting, or with thick expressive brushstrokes.
