I have been wanting to try to paint a Geisha for a while now and thought I just try one in my big Dylusions Art Journal.

Deco Art Products Used:
Americana Arylics in: Colonial Green, True Red, Grey Sky, Moon Yellow, Asphaltum, Soft Heather, Wild Orchid, Spiced Pumpkin, Warm White, Lamp Black.
Americana Multi Surface in Lemon Zest.
Deco Art Media  U;tra matte varsnish and gesso
Dazzling Metallics in Medieval Gold

I made the background first, using stencils, rubber stamps and an old credit card, next I sketched the face sing a charcoal pencil.

I used gesso to create a white surface over the background so it would be easier to paint.

Next I used the charcoal pencil again to sketch the face and clothes back in

Then I started painting in the colors and the shades

 next was the hair and eyes
 Gave the eyes color and added details on her clothes.
 Painted the quote trying to get a Japanese like script.

Finished by giving her eyeashes ad eye brows.

I always protect my painting with a layer of ultra matte varnish , even if they are in a journal.
