What I'm Drawing Now Day 11 - Portrait of Melanie
The limbs are finished, apart from a final touching up. In this picture , I have worked on the limbs as a whole, although I often do one limb, at a time. This way is quicker and sometimes results in more consistency of colour and texture. As I am working to a deadline, I have chosen this faster method. Working on each part of a picture separately is useful for concentrating on fine detail and, also, I find that it can be less monotonous than tackling lots of large areas of continous colour in many different layers.
Once again, the photo was taken in fading light so the colours are a little faded and cooler in hue.
