Self Portrait Part II

And so the tedious work of underpainting begins! I already started blacking out my hair, but not just with black. I also added greens and reds into it to make it look a little bit more interesting. I also started adding the tones and shadows into my face, using the complimentary colors of purple and yellow. I will continue this process until I begin the stage of actually painting in the skin colors of my face. I really like how this is turning out, and I applaud myself for using gouache, one of the mediums that I don't normally use.
