Ophelia’s face

ImagineFX - - In Depth Reinterpret A Classic -

I want to de­pict Ophelia as if she’s day­dream­ing, so I keep her eyes open and sug­gest she’s more alive than dead. I use my base pal­ette of pale skin tones, then add back­ground colours for the shad­ows. I paint the eyes, lips and face de­tails with a De­tail Oil brush set to a small di­am­e­ter and on 15 per cent Opac­ity. I use a medium Wet Acrylic brush for the skin tone and tex­ture.
