This semi abstract woman is desperate for an end of lockdown hair cut. But can she get an appointment soon - noooooo she can't. So instead she is having a home haircut provided by a graffiti style character while another powders her nose. Painted with Neocolor 2 and Stabilo All. Prints and Original available.
When I am working, I usually start with a rough pencil line first. Once I am happy with that I start adding the Neocolor 2 pastels. Then I use water in some areas to create a little smoothing and to add flourishes (paint strokes). Next I work back into areas with Neocolor if needed.
At this point I usually take a photo and then digitally work out what I am going to do next. I like being able to test things out before trying them on paper. Finally I add the outer marks and characters with Stabilo All Black pencil and a black Neocolor.
