Girl With Umbrella Collage

This girl used to work in the office of our apartment complex.  She was kind enough to pose for some photos for me to work with for art classes.  I brought hats, shawls, and an umbrella.  The photos helped me so much but I’m still using them for other things, like inspiration for this collage.

I start with a sketch in pencil and then I begin my search for just the right colors from stacks of magazines and catalogs.  Sometimes I can’t find the color I’m looking for so I use other similar values instead.  The orange on the cheeks works because it is the right value I’m looking for if not the right color hue.  I have laid out my progress here.
