New Additions to the Sophie Series
These oil studies on acrylic-coated Bogus Sketch paper are from last Saturday's Open Life Session at the Multnomah Arts Center. Sophie has modeled for me so much that I could have a show of paintings & drawings of just her.
Another way to treat paper so that you can oil paint on it is to give it a coat of hardware-store-variety shellac. It doesn't warp the paper like the acrylic matte medium does.
Those clips in the corners are clothespins holding the paper to the venetian blinds.
