– For this painting I used a photography that I found on Pinterest as a reference. I loved the colors and the woman´s pose. This painting definetly was a challenge, because painting portraits with acrylics isn´t easy in general. Actually oil paints are better suited for that, but I mostly use acrylics. The other difficulty was her skin tone. Finding a great skin tone that isn´t too brown or looks too dead was really hard too. Not to forget the proportions, I´m not happy with somehow.
But the really bright, almost white skin tone actually looks nice in front of the dark and green background and the red lips fit really well too, I think. But I should have painted the necklace bigger.
In the end I´m not a fan of the painting, but I don´t dislike it either.
