Here is where I began you can see the start of Nigella and the original post here. Black gouache and my Sumi brush.
I left off undecided in what direction to go with in regards to medium. In the end I decided on oil stick, watercolor, pencil and gouache. The painting has an engraved look and feel to it.My goal was a solid deep midnight sky blue for the background. When I finished I wanted a smooth, flat and more solid background so I created the background and the color digitally for my final piece to post .
Thank you for stopping by.
