A bonus GIF I made of the process for tonight’s wind-down-for-bed painting. I thought it would be fun to make it into a GIF, because my portraits are often creepy baldies until the very end. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother to sketch for simple paintings because things change so much in the end. I rarely rely on my sketches for paintings. I like to save the hair for last because I go really crazy. I also reward myself by adding wetness to the eyes at the very end. It’s like the maraschino cherry of an art sundae.
This took about an hour because I am deliberately trying to cut down my tendency to overpolish and refine things.

    I really need to try this technique. I spend way too much time working out details and it really wastes too much time
