First of all, I need an idea. I want to paint a portrait of a woman. Also, I need a good colour to tell the story. My choice this time is the purple.
The purple is usually associated with calm, mysticism, magic. I think I can work with this meaning. The colour will be a magical spell.
I have everything to start the work. After a couple failed sketches, you can see up there the final sketch of the painting. This few lines will be enough to work with. :)
