As it is ridiculously weird, and the figure in the reference photo has a weird face, I have decided to dub this piece ‘Crazy Face’.
The background has been a hard slog to say the least. Six layers of white paint in total to get a completely white background which, after today, seems sliiightly unneeded as I have gone completely experimental on the background with pools of watery acrylics to frame the figure. I’ve also done some small paint splatters which, in some areas, I may some to regret, but for now – it is what it is!
Main sections I’m aiming to complete today are the shoulders of the figure and the laptop. Both sections are relatively simple and will be painted so, but they are large sections which will require a number of layers to get a complete block colour. Nevertheless, I’m very excited to be doing some canvas painting again – even if it’s not in a particularly detailed style, and will have this piece done by Friday ready to give to the client before I start on two pieces – a new family tree piece and another canvas commission of a car. My first ever car as well!
