Making use of layering and overlapping details
Selections are a key part of my painting process. For the detail on her torso I draw the pattern without any perspective and then copy and mirror it, before applying it on her body. I then use the Transformation tool to make it fit her body. I notice that the ribbon isn’t entirely readable, so I add another knot. This technique of layering and overlapping objects helps to make the painting more visually interesting and creates depth.
