This video is first few hours into painting my model Jessica. It was cut short because the camera ran out of memory space during shooting. Also the there is a lot of glare..Next one will be of better quality.

Process for this WIP painting.(click on images to enlarge)

I began this painting by laying in few lines to indicate the general placements/composition, using burnt umber oil paint with rather large brush.

I started getting into forming the face, using more opaque paints of burnt umber and titanium white.
