Acceso WIP 2

It has taken me 4 days to paint in the hair, layer by layer. I used the hairdryer as I usually do to help speed up the process. Do you think maybe the settings on it were a little on the hot side? Look what has happened to the hair! (grin)

Sorry, the camera is really struggling with capturing the bright colours as they are in the painting itself but hopefully this at least gives you an idea of my progress. Clothes next I think. 



  1. WOW that hair is awesome!


  2. I look forward to the next step, Ona. My camera work is even worse than my painting :0)

    I study your brilliant backgrounds, as it is an area that I struggle with

  3. On a second look, she certainly looks Irish to me!

  4. John, I think of the background as the introduction to a book. It helps to set the scene and create the atmopshere for the painting. Its amazing how you can take the same subject and put different backgrounds behind it and end up with very different feeling paintings
