I'm working on this art trade of a lion for my dear hair stylist.
My process so far has been:
Painted a canvas background with sun rays in gold, which reflect the light tremendously (I'm on a gold kick lately!)
Clean a palette of brightly colored alcohol inks, using rubbing alcohol and a paper towel.
Do a new, clean alcohol ink painting of a lion on Yupo paper, using a photo reference, a paintbrush, some rubbing alcohol and alcohol ink.
Photograph the results of all steps, and put them together in Photoshop!
I really hope he loves it, and I'd love to hear what you think! All kind-hearted critique appreciated. ♡
