BOARD LOVE 2012 VI
A small snap of the last few layers of the board - I am so happy with the colour of the hair! Usually red is evil to get nice and flat, across pretty much all paint mediums but I was crafty and sprayed a really good coverage of yellow first. This takes the nasty transparent edge off and I managed a bit of a sunset like fade. I actually wish I had left a little bit more of the yellow showing but no matter how loudly I say it in my head, there is just no Command Z when you are painting for real. The fur was my first attempt at recreating my ink drawings on a large scale with acrylic paint, it was no picnic I tell you but am really pleased with the result. This may well be my favorite board so far.
