Close ups of more plain orange.
Close ups of just black.
This is my atempt to use ink wash on one of the plain orange prints to get a slight blue watery looking background. It looks better in person. I might try to experiment more with blue ink wash and maybe even blue pen and ink. Draw on the prints to give it a watery looking pattern or something. I don't know.
Here is my final painting. In this picture you can see it next to the picture I was referencing. I decided not to do all the stars and instead tried to make it look as if they are coming from her mouth. I hope it looks like that. I might later go back and slightly rework the stars.
Overall though I'm really happy with how it turned out considering that my last major painting wasn't anywhere near this good haha.
I want to keep working with paints.
