one young lady on a magazine
About the process:
a layer of golden acrylic on top of a water/acrylic ochre wash makes the background - it is not very easy to make the pastels stick onto the gold, especially the white pastel! I use a spray (ordinary hair-spray) for the pastel to stay on. With every spray a transparent layer is building up. I don't know how durable this process is. I am working in a sketchbook. I have no idea, what would be the right thing to use "for sale" peaces.
I have to add, I am not a professional artist. I never learned how to finish a work properly. This is the next thing for me to learn!
