12x9 Golden Open Acrylic on wood
I'm working on a lot of big paintings and a small hasn't dried yet. So here is a model study from last night done in Golden Open acrylic. Only my second shot with them on a figure, but I've been using them for landscapes again recently and am feeling more and more comfortable with them. My real issue with this one was the model; a sweet girl, but nodded off repeatedly for the first 3 hours causing my drawing to be off more that I'd like. On the forth hour she came back to life from her naps and told us stories about the remarkable life of being born in a biker bar, her father tying off her umbilical cord with his teeth whlie beating a guy to death. She’s proud of escaping her near Arkansas household appliances in the front yard fate; she's very relieved to have made it the glamorous Hollywood lifestyle. Her current goal is to get stoned and see that new end of the world movie, she hopes it will traumatize her a little as she’s bored not dodging bullets and having meth labs blowing up all around her.
