Face #5 - Straight Inside of My Soul

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.
