Portrait done in acrylics on paper in alla prima. I didn't use any mediums, just water. I shot a video of most of the process and put it on youtube, hope it will be useful to someone; any comments or critiques are also appreciated, thanks :)

That was really interesting. I always watch videos like yours to see how artists manage the progression. Loved it.

Thanks for posting the link - enjoyed watching her develop:)
I think I liked some of the earlier stages better than the final, but that's just personal ...... as Chammi says, a powerful piece.

Thank you Charlie's Mum, I know what you mean, I too feel the same way. Just sometimes it's hard to know when to stop :)
