Visual Demo: A Face

As an artist I find it more helpful to see how another artist handles certain mediums and or how they paint the world around them. I decided to document the painting of an Elsie resin's face. I felt it might be of some interest to someone just learning how to paint or it might come in hand for someone trying their hands in acrylics.

All the work on Elsie's face was brought out using a mixture of acrylics and Liquitex Glazing Medium. The Glazing Medium helps keep the acrylics "open" which means it slows down the drying process enabling blending and shading to occur more easily.
