This is the second piece for my new collection ‘Love Letter’, entitled ‘Ain’t no more flowers’. More or less I worked on this piece¬†with the same approach of the previous one. I worked on the eyes approx 4 hrs since this piece it had eyes open I wanted to achieve mystical look.

I started with several watercolor washes. Then I used ink to add more values and opaqueness and bring out a higher contrast on the leaves. Moreover I gradually added wax pastels and pencil colors for detail. I come back and forth with the mediums till I got a satisfying result, there was no particular order. Finally, I added some highlights with white acrylic and also added the small details.
