This is a painting I worked on in a portrait session today, from a seated model. When I left class, the entire painting had been developed in acrylics, on a canvas that was textured due to my attempt to obliterate the previous painting I had done on it, one I wasn't very happy with. This evening I worked on it in my studio, adding collage elements that helped in obscuring that earlier painting and it's texture. Although this is not a finished piece, I thought I'd post it in this working stage. Then I plan to post it again when I complete it. It's moving toward a much more satisfying conclusion for me, and I'm enthusiastic about going back into it to see how it develops beyond this.
