Day three of October is Gaze! Here is my quick step by step of the painting. I will not discuss any details this time, if you wish to view more elaborate tutorials, click here: Study Tutorial – Reference tutorial – Self portrait tutorial .
I took reference from the famous painting of Johannes Vermeer, Girl with Pearl.
1. Started with a base that locked in the colours and shapes
2. Continued adding details and settled on a background
3. Started on modernising her clothing and adding her hair, as well as adding contrast between background and foreground.
4. Added details (look at the pearl) and finished up the background! That is it!
There will be more step by steps this month, so be sure to check back in again.
