Painting The Face And The Bodeh

These past few days I've been painting some portrait of a random girl (I don't know who she is honestly) on a basic stretcher.






The process was fun. First, I had to put gesso on the canvas cloth but only to the part where I'm gonna paint the portrait and not the entire canvas. Then use a sandpaper to smoothen out the surface. Here's the first layer.

Lmao, I know I know. Stop laughing at this face.

The Grumbacher Gesso is really good though. I literally was dancing while painting (oil paint) cos it feels like I painted for the first time again. Was a bit chalky, holds the paint like it's gold, isn't shiny-ish. So consider this a bit of a reviewish.

And this was the photo that I posted as a story on Instagram because they are boring as fuck. I can't afford to be banned right now so had to cover the nipples just in case.

I painted the second layer the next day and here's the initial result.

I'm happy how the painting turned out so far.

Very strong looking girl.

I also draw here and there but they are just doodles, not as great as your paintings. hehe :)
Great work!

Aww, thank you! Doodles can be great too!

sometimes I try to make infinity ones like yayoi kusama! but of course not even close! lo :D

Oohh I love Yayoi Kusama! I don't think I am even close too lol

Can't beat the greatest! She started all of that infinity! <3

Awesome painting! I really like the way you are shading the skin. It's shining with light. The instagram cencoring is shit and that they are not sharing anything withh the artists is shit a well. I stopped some weeks ago because I also noticed how the prude agenda combined with a lot of meaningless marketing annoyed me. I prefere the athmosphere here. Thanks for sharing your art here. I follow you and resteemed your post ;)

I agree! They won't even let artists have the exemption. And yeah I do think it is a lot better here. We get meaty comments, like yours.. unlike on other platforms. Lol.. Thank you!
