Feeling Light Headed

Close ups
Happy Halloween!
Acrylic, approx. 9"x8" on Canson cold pressed watercolor paper.

The WDE was on a Halloween theme this week. Dana was the gracious hostess.

I first put the drawing on the paper then applied many wet washes of acrylic, often encouraging runs and blends by spritzing with water. Sometimes a blow dryer was used between washes.

I tried to reach a balance between detail and suggestion.

It was a blast to try some experimentation.
