Sketchbook: Sheena In Blue Dress.
Sheena in Blue Dress (Casein, watercolor, gesso, and acrylic ink in Moleskine sketchbook, 5x8").
I used Chinese watercolors for the background. The flesh and hair were painted with Casein. For the dress, I applied a thick layer of gesso as a base. I washed over the gesso with blue acrylic ink and then carved back into the ink using an Exacto knife.
