I am having trouble with a painting I'm doing from a photo taken 32yrs ago.
Its nearly finished except for the hair - I'm trying to get a sheen ( shininess) to it, as at the moment it is looking dry.
Any suggestion please will be appreciated
Without seeing it it's difficult to say but jsut remember that all hair is mutli-colored and the sheen to which you refer are actually specular highlights so don't be afraid to experiment with some very light tones worked in. Just look at the hair color commercials. They are all proclaiming highlights. ;-)
Just a thought,
Will look into it a bit more :)
