"It's ALL over now.........." 6" x 8", Acrylic on gessoed card, 2008
This is another transformation, I have gone straight with acrylic here for most of this painting.
1. I sketched her face in, with the TOM BOW dual felt pen (dark grey)
2. I then went straight with a direct painting technique of shapes of colours, not paying attention to details ( Broad Brush Strokes)
3. I added detail to the shapes of colours (Smaller Brush Strokes)
4. I tried to recover some of the drawing with Wolff's carbon pencil(4B) that I purposely wanted to show in the final work
Then without the reference sketch, I combine some subtle strokes around the painting with some overstatements in the hair to keep the semi abstract nature of that area alive!
