Working with this piece was not as freeing as working on the cardboard. When I got my supplies together and put that huge 18x24 pad up on my easel, it kind of freaked me out. So much white!
I put on my music and gave it a go. I must admit I got a bit more picky with this one and so it was not as relaxing as the first two BIG paintings. It was a good exercise though. Now I hope to add some background and try to finish her neck. That may be impossible! I should have painted it in before adding all that hair, but I didn't sketch her before I started, just painted her right onto the paper.
