Here is the most recent portrait painting that I have been working on. It was done using all hand painted deli papers and acrylic. I recently downloaded a video by Anne Bagby. I am a huge fan of her collage work and the video was wonderful! She is such a talented artist & if you have not done so I advise you to check out her work. I will definitely be incorporating some of her techniques into my own work in the future. This painting went through lots of small changes before I was satisfied. I put together a slideshow to show some of them. This work was done over an old failed painting on a 24 x 24 x1.5 canvas. The canvas was gently used and too big to not give a second chance. It was first lightly sanded & then covered with gesso. Here is the rest:
I have no idea who the pointing woman is at the end!
Until the next time...........
Peace to you!
