www.thefashionfrog.blogspot.com I decided to do something with it. I usually draw on very white paper, but I tried this old looking paper. The texture is different and gives a different feel to the piece.

Rough sketch, pink / blue ballpoint and pencil on paper.
Exhale. Pencil and red pencil on paper. 21 x 29,7 cm.
This is a sketch for a serie paintings I'm going to make. It's going to be a lot of faces and just a little bit of the body, because I want to concentrate on faces first. I've made several sketches with girls and nature, insects and animals.
Exhale. Pencil, red pencil on paper, added colours in Photoshop. 21 x 29,7 cm.
I drew her naked at first, but it became a pornographic image. Something that I didn't want...so I changed it into leaves.

Together with my little sister I went to Naturalis. It's a National Nature Historical museum with 5.250.000 insects, 1.160.000 fossils, 440.000 stones and minerals, and lots of big and small skelletons and stuffed animals. A great oppurtunity to expand my reference pictures. The shame crab is very funny, the animals in bottles, the textures of the plants, special stuffed animals.
They will have circus animals since october so I will come back for that.

Still in process, I'm working on this painting in very thin layers. They are dry within one day.
The woodpanel is sand down first so the surface is very smooth now. I prepared it with Polyvine to make it smoother, but I'm going to try an acrylic medium next time.
Here you can see how the sketch look like without the paint. To get thin lines of paint I paint a stroke with a small pencil and blend it with another dry brush. This is a nice method.
