Then from there I drew my figure, and then painted using acrylics and a 2" brush.
I only used 3-4 colors. White, buff, flesh, red oxide and a little red. The background is purple and turquoise.
I drew the image with a charcoal pencil, then painted with out using any water. Just a moist brush and paint. This was so much fun. It is big. 20x26.
