    A girl from Scanno in the traditional costume

    Here's a portrait from a reference (no tracing or color picking etc.). I tried to paint it accurately enough. Only background + figure layers (2).

    Thank You, dear Amanda! Today I saw her on a picture and I decided to change her and her attire into a painting. It obviously took more than usual, but still not so much to end up posting a WIP. Anyway I just cannot keep into a too much limited palette as it could have been nice here, I'm afraid.

    I'm glad to possibly cause You to resume the costume painting genre dear Anna. I don't have any genre limitation, provide there's some sort of unusual or interesting painting challenge and nice composition. Here there were more than one. Thank You!

    Many thanks, dear VanHeber! I'm glad for Your appreciation!

    Dear Pat, so many compliments on the same painting! Thank You very much!

    Dear Guyjin, I din't know much about Jessica Alba, so I gave a look to google images. I didn't find a profile picture of her to assess better the likeness degree, but she's certainly a beautiful girl. Thank You!

    Right, dear SCP! More time spent but still no planning or complex approaches. I didn' use glazes on a different layer for instance, as I shoud have probably.
    Thank You!
