Portrait of singer Shakira by Donna-Marie Quick

Portrait of singer Shakira

This is oil on canvas. 16x20inch.
This is a painting that I just really wanted to do. I love music and a sense of drama in my painting, so the two just went together. I also really love black and white.

I'm self-taught and don't know a lot about painting. Can you give me advice about shadowing? I know you don't just use black. I heard somewhere that you use...
Hi, Nancy-Lee. I don't know about watercolour,but in oils I would use the complimentary colour,in this case,a green. On the dry red use a thin glaze,say 50/50... view answer
