This is an oil on paper and I measured it so it would fit into a A4 frame.
First comes the sketching, than I started to paint directly with oil without any under-layer.
I decided to begin with the face, because if that part doesn't turn out right, then there is no meaning in continuing with the rest of the painting. But it turned out pretty ok :)
One way is to make the background blurry and with less details than the front.
Thursday challenge - If I should move it over there...
I am constantly moving my little art projects around. At the moment this one is standing on a small table until I know where to place it more permanently. Or maybe it fits better at someone else's home?
