I started putting color on yesterdays start. OMG! Get out the gesso and collage papers, what a disaster! One thing that experience teaches is when to cut your losses, and start again. Actually, I had made some major mistakes in the scale of each head, so even if the technique had worked out, the drawing was flawed. Anyway, I decided to go with Tyvek this time and was able to complete the painting from drawing to last glaze in 4 or 5 hours. I took a break in between to let it dry. Now that I am looking at it on the computer, I see a few adjustments I would like to make. Overall, I am pleased with this one. It is a good likeness of three out of the four heads. 2 down, 18 to go!
