Acrylic on hardboard 12" x 9"
I saw this face in a magazine and it spoke to me. I don't know who it is - that was not important (in fact he reminded me of Egon Schiele) - but I gave him some surgery and made him red-headed which seems appropriate for angels somehow. I have started doing some painting in the evenings in electric light which is the only chance I have most days of getting any work done. The technique I am using - many light passes with thin acrylic paint also lends itself to working in different light settings as corrections can more easily take place than say if you were working all prima. In fact I am finding this technique very relaxing and absorbing and I can pick it up and put it down as many times as I want or need until it is finally done.
