Hi friends!

I never see a MardyGra's Carnival in real life. All I know about this is articles in magazines and TV shows on Discovery Channal. The fact that for someone a part of life and cultural traditions, I imagine as mysterious exotic of a distant country... I like the colors of this holiday and the feeling of fun in connection with the arrival of spring... So today I painted such a colorful mask onĀ Steemit art contest

Today I decided to draw with traditional art materials, namely paints of tempera.

Sketch.

Usually I draw on watercolor paper high quality.

Steps.

For the yellow parts, I mixed cadmium yellow paint, burnt sienna and natural sienna. Highlights on metal areas of mask & beads I maked by lemon cadmium.

For the purple ribbons and beads I take white color, cadmium red & ultramarine. Shades should be cooler and darker than light parts. This will add relief to the loops of ribbons.

Then I painted a green fragments of the mask with emerald green, yellow cadmium and some white.

Finally I drew a background for mask. Real thing can't just hang in the air! Therefore I drew a wood door on which hangs a wreath with a mask. I needed burnt sienna, natural sienna and black paints/ Lower part of door should be darker than upper through drop shadow from wreath.

And the very last stroke!

With mixing white & ultramarine I add a highlights on a folds of ribbons to show what they from sparkling textile like organza.

I think I do good painting!

Have a nice and creative day!

With Love...
