Art: Portrait of a Lady by Artist Ulrike 'Ricky' Martin
This portrait was worked in Oil with a somewhat unusual technique. First I rendered the pencil drawing onto the white canvas. Then I painted the entire canvas with a wash of burnt umber. With the use of tissues I wiped back the paint where i wanted the highlights to be. In the areas where I needed more contrast I applied more burnt umber. The resultant portrait reminds me of an old sepia photograph.
