11 Paint­ing the lips

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

As with the rest of the paint­ing, the lips are a grad­ual process of start­ing with a base tone and build­ing up the shad­ows and high­lights. I start with a fairly bright pink tone be­cause I want her lip colour to stand out. Then I add a deeper pink, almost pur­ple to the far­thest cor­ner of her mouth where the shad­ows are strong­est. I think about the form and where the shad­ows will fall.
