12 Ex­per­i­ment with colours

ImagineFX - - In Depth | Portrait Art -

I cre­ate a Mul­ti­ply layer and lay down some colours. And here’s why I get rid of the greys: when start­ing to add colours, your pas­tel brush will pick up and blend some of the colours from the un­der­paint­ing. And you don’t want to mix grey and get muddy colours. I use a very de­sat­u­rated sub­tle green colour as the base, which mixes with the red, cre­at­ing some in­ter­est­ing ef­fects. Some parts of the face like the nose, cheeks and ears need ad­di­tional colour to make the face pop out of the can­vas.
