As part of my development of a new style, and an effort to get into fashion illustration, here is a practice piece of a girl with a blue feather fascinator. In this piece my aim was to loosen up with my rendering and incorporate an outline into my work in order to make my painting go much quicker. I finished this entire painting, from thumbnail to final in about six hours, which is very quick for someone who normally paints so realistically.
This piece can be viewed here on out in my sketchbook gallery at Shaunart.net: http://shaunart.net/pages/sketchbook
Your comments and criticisms are especially welcome while I work on this new style!
