i need to finish her hands and hair...and who knows what else ill pick at
i did it on a crappy panel from walmart that a didnt prime. it was super toothy and will only use those for cartoon/ decor paintings for my kids rooms (they dont know the diff!)
ughhhhh sooooo i was super antsy to begin a portrait, but i could never get a good picture of my sister. i finally settled on this one of her sitting next to a window and this crazy light is coming through and she looked really pretty but i hated her hand in front of her face. but i wanted to start painting so bad i just went for it.
the reference photos has all the lines on it, obviously......
I "laminate" my own photos with packing tape!!! works pretty good too.
