Head Above the Clouds

This picture started as nothing but a female anatomy practice, however, as I worked on it, I decided to go further and experiment with bold, contrasting colors, as well as textures, given I needed to practice backgrounds. I aimed to achieve a semi-realistic style without spending too much time on it, incorporating points of interest such as the bright shades of yellow and orange and the abstract look inspired after elements from the universe. Ultimately, I think this drawing is representative for my style and ways of working.
