Lately I've been much inspired by the amazing artist:
I find her use of color just gorgeous so I wanted to try the technique she uses of painting in grayscale first then adding color. She has a very helpful tutorial here:[link]
This was such a great learning experience for me! It takes a minute to get your head around adding the colors in blend modes but I really think i like it.
Also I used a lovely model for reference from this website:[link]
