This face only emerged after I gessoed over the one I had started which wasn't working the way I had thought it would. I'm so glad I covered it up and let this girl come out.
Lessons learned...gesso is my friend and to be flexible because every painting has a soul waiting to get out, and it's not necessarily the one you thought it was going to be.
Done on 4x6 140lb cold press watercolor paper in acrylics, with some background collage and, of course, gesso.
