Started this one today. Made more progress than I expected but I spent more time on it than expected too. Not sure if it is considered 'mixed media' since I did use Micron Pigma pens and colored pencil for sketching and Schmincke transparent Aerocolor for the under-painting to seal and tint the paper. The hair is also an under-painting (holbein acryla burnt umber & ultramarine blue) The painting is gouache on paper. The scan was terrible so I took a photo instead which which still doesn't resemble the soft matte glisten of the work. Still have a long way to go and the painting does include the entire figure. I am semi-stuck at this point since I would like to drape a piece of clothing or linen from her waist to partially cover the lower area.
