New Painting Started: A Kiss On the Neck

August 7, 2017

I’m finally getting around to starting a new painting. It’s based on an old photo of mine of two friends, John and Sarah, who posed for me.

This is the undertone I’ve put down in a thin ink wash made of sepia India ink from Sennelier. The surface is a small piece of Multimedia Artboard, 8 x 16 inches. I’ll be using casein as my paint media on top of this.

Although the Mutimedia Artboard has both a smooth and rough side, this is actually on the smooth side, even though it looks rough. It’s just due to the way the thin wash is absorbed into the surface. I rather like the texture, and may try to keep it in the final.
