WAG - Demo - Acrylics with Jill Ilett

Jill Ilett
Started with a few marks  in charcoal, for guidance.

 And progressed 

 Layering the colours, and blending. 

Made me reach for the acrylics! Thanks, Jill, very interesting.


You folks know that I never sketch, so this was the beginning of a new painting. It developed into a sketch because I worked out that I would have to -a) make a bigger painting, or b) lose a couple of people. 
I learned earlier this year that I don't do small heads, not easily anyway. Start again then! My grateful thanks to the ever patient members of the West Winch Art Group.
I had this idea for a painting to submit to the BP Portrait competition this year and got all excited, but then realised it has all been done before. .............

I initially got the idea from a pic in a magazine. ..

We shall see how this develops!
