wow! sooo beautiful!
what is your process in making a lovely...
um! wait.

this is a really small canvas 12 inches by 18inches? That must be really challenging, as you've got to make a really tight piece in every aspect.

the lighting is fantastic and the quality of her skin is so smooth! How many layers did you make? how thin is the paint?

oh so many questions, and you are asking the wrong person as i really don't know what i'm doing! i'm just learning as i muddle along
erm, i always paint the canvas a buff colour in acrylic just so's i'm not painting straight onto bright white, then i sketch out my visual in pencil so that i can make amends and check the composition on the canvas before applying paint, other than that i mostly paint with oils straight out of the tube, no medium or anything
i mix white into nearly every colour i do, it seems to make it more opaque and gives a chalky quality i like

hope that helps?

Very nice, with the flower in the hair, the smoking, the look and all.. Very creamy somehow.

Looks like you've been doing alot of painting . Fantastic job Emma . Do you use live models or photographs of them ?
Reply
:iconemmamount:
EmmaMount Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007
photographs. i'm not lucky enough to have time, or access to real models.....for now anyway
but i do try and change elements of the photo to add a personal touch of my own, eg. i'm quite keen on doing this damask wallpaper background or velvet curtains right now, and i might change what they're holding, or colours, and of course the girls look different painted to how they look in a photo anyway

try myspace.com there's hundreds (literally) of girls in there, you can just add them as friend, then write and ask permission to paint them from one of their photos, i've found everyone i've asked so far has said yes with no charge
its free to get a page in there, maybe you should go network?=D

That's exactly how I do it . If your doing it that way , it makes me think I'm doing something right . I haven't tried oils yet . I've been playing with my ink pens again . Thanks for the myspace tip . I used to be a member . I'm covered on models though . They are lined up waiting right now ..ha ha . Thanks for the love you EXTREMELY TALENTED , BEAUTIFUL , INTELLIGENT ,(married) , WOMAN ..ha ha again ...but still true .

STUNNING skin tones and once again a MASTERFUL execution with such a crazy-tough medium such as oils!!!

That background is just unbelievalble...so well crafted/rendered....

EmmaMount Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2007
thanks so much for the compliments

you could do a background like that you know....just takes time, patience, and something good on the telly to keep you awake while you're doing it :yawnstretch::laughing:
i always think they're worth it at the end though;)
