I have a love of Venetian masks, and love to paint them....This is one I did while I was in Italy. I had taken some photos with me just in case.
I didn't draw this one out as it was only intended to be a quick sketch with paint. I start by placing some colour of the part that grabs my attention most, the part that inspired me to paint the photo in the first place. I then carry on working outwards from that part and stop when I feel I have enough on the paper to say what it is.
You don't have to paint the whole photo, but you need to know when to stop, maybe the hardest part...
