Step 1: Draw the sketch using a charcoal. Fix your drawing with fixative.
Step 2: Using the flat paint brush n°20, apply the Prussian blue colour to the top of your canvas. Then mix this colour with light yellow, apply the mixed colour in a gradient to the rest of the sky while avoiding the clouds.
Step 3: Work on the cloud with the cadmium yellow medium colour. Use Prussian blue to emphasize shadows. Then, with a brush, work the effects on the cloud.
Step 4: With Prussian blue, return to the to the top of the sky around the cloud to add additional contrast.
Step 5: Improve the effects of the cloud by using the Light yellow and Titanium white colours directly on the cloud in order to add more dimension.
Step 6: Using the colour Prussian blue create the horizon that will define the limits between the sky and the sea.
Step 7: Using the light yellow colour create a gradation effect from the horizon up to the face, avoiding the silhouette in the sea.
Step 8: Work with Cadmium yellow medium and Prussian blue on the rocks. Then, with a touch of Titanium white, go over the colours to obtain a shade ranging between yellow, grey and blue.
Step 9: With a touch of Burnt sienna and Oriental red, paint the silhouette. Then, using a combination of Prussian blue and Oriental red, paint the hair, shirt as well as her reflection in the water. Finally, with a touch of Titanium white, lighten up the right side of the silhouette and the details of the central rock.
Step 10: With the Burnt sienna and a touch of Prussian blue, start to work on the shadows of the face and hair.
Step 11: Again using Burnt Sienna, refine the face by adding light to the areas requiring more dimension.
Step 12: To perfect the face add a touch of Light yellow to add light to the areas requiring more dimension and to the hair.
Step 13: Use the Titanium white colour around the face to add more contrast, and to the hair. Your painting is completed!
