This week I have a commission and it is love-themed. My client wanted a portrait of his girlfriend, who loves plants, nature, trees, and mushrooms (the non-illegal kind).
My interpretation of #nofilter is literally showing you the process of my acrylic work, without the filter of a sexy presentation or cleaned-up digitally-altered drawing.
This is stage 3 or 4, an ink drawing to guide my painting. The board surface is wood, which I sealed with a thin layer of matte medium to prevent ink bleeding. After this I will apply washes of color, and eventually details, and some more ink and gouache. And yes, I'll paint out that double right arm.
