Portraits of Friends – Blue Bow Tie

lillys

Whenever I’m not sure what to draw or I just want some practice I ask a friend if I can draw them.

With this one I practiced colour theory in trying to bring out the blueness of the bow tie by covering the canvas in blue and then painting over, which meant that all the colours picked up a significant amount of blue. In fact, in some places the hair has come out purple.
