|The finished portrait. I met these three to photograph them so
I was able to set this pose up.
|My line drawing transferred onto velour|
|Blocking in the dark areas|
|Focusing on the girl’s face as she will be behind
most of the layers.
|My setup…I like to have a desk top easel so I can have the
colours I’m using right in front of me.
|Working in the shirt background to the dogs creating really
dark areas to make the contrasts high.
|This means these foreground characters
really stand out
|The final layer is the girl’s arms in the very foreground which
encloses the group nicely.
|Two sweet faces in protective arms.|
