"Never let yesterday use up too much of today. . ."
- Will Rogers
Tried a new technique where you paint over a picture from a magazine. This lovely lady is an ad from Estee Lauder and is covered in clear gesso. Have you ever used clear gesso? That stuff is SUPER gritty - not sure if I like it or not.
Decided that the hands were unnecessary so I painted over them! In this pic I've also painted over her dress and lips.
Painting over her face erased the rest of the fingers. This technique is fun to try and would be especially great when you are starting with faces and are nervous about drawing them.
Kristin Dudish is starting Tutorial Try-outs on Tuesdays. Read this post to find out more - I cheated since I didn't do any collaging first but I don't think she'll send the paint police after me.
