Painting with Gelatos

At the beginning of March, I saw this video on Donna Downey's blog and just had to try painting with my gelatos! Of course, my subject matter had to be my signature girls - the video did have a great tip on drawing hair that I just had to try. Here are the results:
I started with the red-head. I sketched her outline, then painted with my gelatos, adding details with gelatos, Neocolor II and watercolour pencils. The background came last, and based on the results I thought it'd be better the other way around (background colour first)... So of course I had to make another. I'm really happy with these - I'll definitely be trying it again. In my opinion, it's watercolour with a bit more control. Fun!
