Sally's first painting

Sally spent about 4 hours on her first painting at Inglis academy. She is pretty happy with the result!

Sally's first painting at Inglis Academy

We approached the subject in 4 stages:

  1. Drawing a black and white charcoal sketch to determine the best tonal composition.
  2. Blocking in the tones and basic colours on the canvas.
  3. Adding textured layers of colour and blending
  4. Refining highlights
