Hombre de Colores by Litca 2021

I had a great process for this piece, I started painting with my giant Chinese brush to have 2 color brushtrokes on the paper in different places.

Next I started to sketch his eyes and face with a watercolor sienna pencil, drawing the rest of the face and hair, this is when I check the proportions of the whole face.

My favourite part is to combine and add the oil pastels, with them I can blend and find the light, medium and dark tones by just adding different colours. Then I work on the eye expression and lids with color pencils.

The hair part is done by scratching with watercolor pencils how you want it to be, curly straight or wavy, I like this method because other colors show up on the background of the oil pastels.

Now it’s the necks turn, I have to add oil pastels colors and mind the face shadow, so I go with the pencils and blend everything on the neck and face.

Time to mix some white Acrylic mixed with water for all the lights, sparkles of the eyes, and background. I wanted the background to be really white so the man stands out, so I applied white to all the background, adding 3 layers. I’m happy with the result.

I hope you like it!
