Started this yesterday still a few sessions to go her head is not right ....and that just won't do!
i like the colors though
I want movement in this painting, so i'm trying to paint as loosely as possible

Can't wait to see the finished piece.Do you start working from dark to light and is the entire piece from start to finish done with a knife ? or do you sometimes use a brush.Your work has a soft look to it, I guess because your edges are not as hard ?!

hi Sheri

I start with a colored underpainting--sometimes blue sometimes orange

then situate the composition with the same acrylic paint with a brush==much like a sketch....then i begin with the knife

i guess i do start on the dark...side of things :)

Your colors come across great on the web! This one brings Toulouse-Latrec to mind, although it is hard to say specifically why. I'll watch for the finished version.

(ps.. the word verification below says 'fobdmsod'. I think I'll title my next work that. )
