By the way, if you notice a similarity between this and my new version of Alice’s Picnic in Wonderland, that’s ’cause I used the same person (Cheryl ‘Rainbeaux’ Smith) as inspiration for my Alice redo…I thought she totally fit the bill of Alice 🙂

    Amazing! How small are your brushes??
    I love the combination of vibrant blue and yellow hues with monochrome background 🙂 Do you glaze or paint wet in wet?

    Thanks! I use a lot of small flat brushes, I think they are 1/16 but the numbers rubbed off on the main ones so I’m not sure. For small details, like the eyes, the smallest I am using is a 5/0 round. On this one I was planning on glazing some color on, although I made it too dark I think. I often glaze over a mono underpainting when I am painting faces on panel, but paint more directly when I am painting on canvas. Still experimenting with different techniques though 🙂
