Study of Marie-C - Day 26

ACRYLIQUE

Je crois bien avoir passé autant de temps sur le sketch qu'à peindre ce portrait de Marie-C une fille superbe et qui joue au roller derby. Il y a une bonne couche de gesso comme base avec beaucoup de texture.

I think I spent as much time drawing the sketch than painting this portrait of Marie -C,  a beautiful girl who plays roller derby. A lot of gesso was applied at the very beginning to create some texture.

She IS a beautiful girl, and you've portrayed her with such charm. Is she really a roller blader? That's a scary sport, I would think! Congratulations, Helen, on almost finishing the month of daily paintings! You've produced incredible paintings every single day!

Thanks Celia. I'm a little late and got mixed up with some comments. I know you've been quite busy this month also but we made it. Isn't that great? Hugs
