I recently completed an INTERESTING watercolor painting based off of the following Holbein painting of Anne of Cleves
I love the mood of the figure and her Crazy clothes (in today's standards). But I still wanted to add something of my own to her. (something weird as usual) Presto! a hat is now a pair of croissant roll-looking horns!
I used my new fine tip inks to start.
I then used masking fluid to cover some of the figure.
I then painted the background an orange color and the masking fluid protected the areas I wanted to leave white.
I then painted more masking fluid in a splattery fashion on more of the background. Then I painted darker reddish orange over top of that when it dried. and PEELED AWAY!
The light orange shows through where the masking fluid was.
Add a little bluish green for clothes and skin.
TADA! ANNE OF CLEVES WITH HORNES! -I'll try to get a better pick up soon.
see ya later and God Bless!
