Ms. Leftover..a figure on Wallis Sanded Paper
I wanted to paint something today (of course!), but I had time constraints. I dashed out this "made up" female in leftover paint onto a piece of leftover Wallis Sanded Paper. Did you know that Wallis Paper (generally used for pastel) accepts oil paint in a very interesting way? Be careful if you try it..use some bristle brushes you don't care about..the sanded surface chews them up some. It's worth it though..the effect is favorable. Her flesh is kind of green (because I only used the paint I had out). Well, I like her anyway..and her heavy lids. She looks like someone who is serious...but on the brink of a smile. Maybe she's smug about being an unusual ochrey-green.
