I ate the first bite before I even noticed it had found its way into my mouth! Had to hold back so I could get the second bite painted! Had to move into bigger format as I have run out of 8" x 5" canvases - can't remember what size this is but its a little larger. I have a lot of unstretched canvas and I have been thinking about getting some boards cut and then stretching the canvas over the boards as a way to be able to go on painting until my ordered canvases arrive. I remember someone sent me instructions on how to do that but I can't remember where I put them. Then again someone gave me the name of a store that might, just might, have canvases for sale - hoping to get there this week to take a look.
I've been taking part in the portrait swap on WetCanvas and decided to try out a different medium. This is charcoal on Rives. Was pleased that it came out looking like my victim but is not quite how I had imagined the final result. Need some practice with charcoal portraits.
