Learn To Paint A Ballerina Dress

This painting is a self portrait of Clina Polloni student Labannya Samanta. The challenge is to get a perfect definition of light and shadow, creating the many colors tones to accomplish the folding of the close.

Instructions and Progression:

1. You start by drawing and painting a good under-paint. It was done in acrylics because they dry faster and it gives you the opportunity to paint immediately. Draw with your acrylics the light and shade.
2. Continue with oils, light areas first, then medium tone and finally shading colors. Blend these colors very softly to create a fine transition.
