Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 107
Amazing Spider-Man #641, Cover. 2010.
Watercolor and gouache on Illustration Board, 11 x 17".
Lately, I've been printing my color studies right next to my reference photos so everything is in the same place. As I've mentioned before, I often paint on the printout in order to match my colors in context. The female models come from stock photography I found on-line after a search for "wind-swept hair." I probably could have done without the extra reference, but I'm sure it informed my decisions in some way.
