Another face

This is the face for Effy Wild’s Book of Days, Session 2, Lesson 7.  We were to try for a face that is not as perfect looking as we are usually striving to make.  Not that mine are perfect anyway, but that was the lesson.  The idea is that less perfect faces have more attitude and expression in them.

This face was very hard for me, not because I can’t make an imperfect face, but I just had soo much trouble painting her.  She has coat after coat of acrylic paint on her.  She developed a glossy texture and what I needed to do was to cover her with clear gesso before adding another coat, but I had no clear gesso.

My daughter says if I was supposed to make an ugly face, I failed.  She isn’t ugly, she is quirky.  She has personality.  OK  Here is my quirky face…
