I’ve had so much fun painting and sketching the lovely Dayris from Sktchy in oil (above), and before that, in pencil and then doing a digital sketch in Procreate (below). Also below you’ll find a slide show of the work in progress. Doing the two initial drawings really helped me quickly get a pretty accurate drawing for the oil painting. You can see her reference photo on Sktchy here.

Below are the steps in the process of making the portrait.

  • Initial pencil drawing of Dayris, 12x9"
  • Digital Sketch of Dayris in Procreate
  • Umber underpainting
  • Some background and shirt
  • Some paint on face
  • Icky background in with palette knife
  • More work on background, still icky
  • Background better but not happy with shirt or hair
  • Almost done
  • Scraped off shirt and some hair to redo
  • Portrait of Dayris, Oil on Arches Oil Paper, 10"x8.5"
