Making of Warrior Woman
The idea for making this painting came from this drawing I found online (I would acknowledge the artist, but I can't remember where I took it from now). I thought that the gray scale image with some touches of orange created a very good contrast. I only wanted to reproduce roughly the figure and make a simple white background. I made some changes to the figure, but the whole idea for her posture and clothes came from this image.
I first made a sketch on a note book to get a hold of the measurements before passing it onto the canvas using charcoal. For the paint, I only used black, white and orange acrylic paint. I changed the original idea I had in mind for her hair, as seen on the sketch, as I started applying the hair colour. I dont know if it was for better or for worse.
