This piece was done on a 18 X 24 masonite board.
Acrylic Paint and Charcoal

-I put a coat of gesso on the board
-I sketched on the drawing of the girl with pencil
-I then bloched on where I saw fit white paint for the highlights of the facial features such as the cheek bone, chin, forehead, under the eyebrow, and parts of the nose
-Next was the shadow or darker parts of the face, here i blotched on shades of darker grey
-Blend using paint brush and sometimes my fingers :)
-Add details with paint, like more highlights
-Brush blue background for more contrast between face and board
-And Finally add the last details with charcoal pencil
