I tried another sgraffito portrait. This time I painted a layer of yellow acrylic and added black oil pastel over top. Oddly enough I had a hard time with this one. It kept ending up looking like the negative of a photo. I was thinking too much. And then all of a sudden it clicked and I was able to wipe away the lights to bring her face alive.
Creepy as she is there is something about her I like. There is some kind of mystery to her. I added some scribbles and stamps to this one. I really like the scratching and wiping away. Its good to get some angst out! Maybe that is what shows in her face . . . my angst!
Sharing her today for Sunday Sketches.
