After reading my peers Fantasy descriptive writing, I began drawing out initial sketches and ideas. I then started exploring different media to paint with. For my mock paintings I used makeup to paint with, hoping for an interesting texture created to portray skin. From this test I realised makeup as a media doesn’t allow much depth to be created. Because I had not used gold paint before, I was unsure wether it would compliment the colour of the skin. From these tests, I noticed that the two colours are surprisingly very different and somehow need to overlapped or combined to unify the surface.
