joanna painting

revisiting an older sketch I did about 7 years ago of an old friend Joanna.
Here's some slight images of my work process on working on this piece
 simple break down, not close to the real photo, had to resize the head a lot.
started early on with grey tones help me a lot, colors are easy to get confused on the shape, so it's best to be black and white.

 the color is blended into the grey tones, although not as appeal but still it works to get the job done

a lot of slapping of colors in there, the primary colors sometimes just sit there waiting to get blended in. The dress is a difficult piece, but trying to set up a flow of the fabric.

closer to the end, still always little details to update like the nose, hands, and fabric.
