I think we can learn so much by studying and copying the masters. The original is called 'Le Rêve - the dream' and can be seen here.
I started off by drawing a sketch onto an A3 sheet painted with gesso.
Then I started adding colours . I used Schmincke water colours (from the time when I was at school!) and Gelatos with a water brush.

Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
