I always lose steam by the end of the week, so today’s painting for the 30 in 30 challenge might be a little late…
On the plus side, I might have figured out the best working method for me:
- Apply acrylics for the base “flats”, smooth where possible
- Paint the eyes and other fine details in acrylics ONLY
- Paint over only certain areas in water-soluble oils as needed.
And that way, I’ll get my nice, smooth surfaces, and my fine detail, and not want to tear my hair out! 😉
In case you were wondering, this painting is 90% acrylic. I only painted over in oils parts of her nose, lips, ear, and the lower part of her cheek.
