This is a head painting of another friend of Sala’s, the lovely Rachelle.  I actually had her dress up for me over Christmas break and we had a photo shoot.


I did a basic pencil sketch to start out with then scanned it into the computer to paint it digitally.












This was just supposed to be another study, but I was having so much fun that I ended up creating a mostly finished painting.  She reminds me a bit of Maid Marian so if I were to name this piece it would be “Dreams of Sherwood.”


Here are some close ups, I’m rather pleased with the clasp design I created:



Sometime I may come back to this piece and refine the border on her hood,  but I’m happy with it for now.  Thanks for posing for me Rachelle!

  1. Looks great! Interestingly, I’m in the middle of reading “Ivanhoe,” so this post came just at the right time.
