Portrait of a Young Woman

Hi Everyone –

Had some questions about the process I played with for this painting of a young woman so I’m posting progression photos – this painting experiment was fun but in no way would I say this is archival.
Painted on paper with 2 layers of fixative. Creating was FUN, just working without much plan, letting things develop as I went along. Slathering the paint on with a knife and then sculpting into it with a brush…

My spirit may be freeing up!

Charcoal sketch on paper. Acrylics for black and orange. You can see how my charcoal drawing smeared … reclaimed the drawing using paint up until the end.
