Latest Dorothy Piece

This was a very involved piece that took me through an extensive journey of photo referencing, costuming, and a soft glazing process in order to maintain the color palette intended. My models used for the characters in the painting had fun with the costuming and the idea of being munchkins which made shooting reference enjoyable. Throughout the developement of taking all the photos, we seemed to pull out all kinds of tricks using drapery, safety pins, pillow cases and whatever we could find to assemble an innovative wardrobe.
