Progress making of Bridesmaid Sam
I started with studying the portrait by drawing it.
The colors for this portrait.
I always start with the eyes.
I make the mosaic on a temporary medium. To transport it to a permanent medium in a later phase.
Tiny pieces of smalti in the eyebrows.
A child’s nose…..not easy….
The face looks weird in this stage. It needs to be finished to be absolutely sure if the portrait is in balance.
And here is her face…….
The face is now glued to its permanent medium. I will do the hair and background directly on the medium.
I will put a lot of gold mosaic in her hair to make it shiny !
The background has a playfull andamento, which makes a nice contrast to the andamento of the face.
