"Delicate Diffusion" in prog. part 2

Worked on some details today. I decided to experiment and use colored pencils and acrylic on watercolor paper. During the process I ended up gessoing over the face and arms because I wanted to paint it with oil. From now on I'm gessoing everything first before the drawing and just using acrylic as an under painting. I've found that I really dig oils better than acrylic. Hate cleaning the brushes though. After 1am and that's what I have to do right now. Hope you all enjoy the progress. I'm around 75% done which means I have uhhh.....50% to go! LoL!

"On a Wing and a Prowl" Oil - 24" x 36"

Rough photo of my piece I finished about a week ago. One more to add to my body of work before I head to Illuxcon in November. Several more to go. Thanks for the reference Kenny!
While I was looking at this piece during the process in the mirror, I liked the inverted image so much that I had to experiment and see how it measured up beside the original. I don't know how you feel but I think it looks cool. Too bad it would take me forever to paint a mirror image!
