Pop Art - deux
Pick a color! You will only use two colors: White and another dark color. From these two colors you will create two more shades; a lighter shade and a darker shade. Pretty much you will go from white to your color choice in four steps: Example: White -- light blue --- darker blue -- darkest blue. Got it? Post a comment if I confuse you.
Next, you PAINT!
(1) Take a detail brush and paint your highlighted areas first. The teeth, the white of the eyes...anything that stands out as being a lighter area.
(2) Take the darkest color and outline the darkest areas. The eyes, the lips, the shape of the face. Also, when painting hair, have your strokes mimick hair strokes; short and wispy.
(3) Dab with a fuller brush your lighter areas.
(4) Dab with your darker color you mixed, ALL OVER the painting.
Let dry and flip! So much fun and oh so cool!
