A Halloween Portrait – Philadelphia Fine Art K. Hu K. Liu Fine Art

I have been working on Halloween costumes, and thus neglecting my blog.  Because, of course, Halloween is the coolest and best holiday of the year.  Even with the Christmas spirit, there is no generosity like that on Halloween when every house gives candy to every trick or treater and absolutely free.  Plus you get to dress up in some kind of costume you can’t wear the rest of the year without being asked if you are going to a costume party (trust me, I’ve tried this many times.)

This oil sketch is on watercolour paper.  First time I’ve used it and I gessoed the crap out of it.  It seemed to be just fine for an oil sketch, but I can’t say I would use it for more serious work.  I think I would if I knew a better and less absorbent gesso to lay on.

Have a fantastic rest of Thursday!

Don’t forget to check out what I have on e-bay – as I keep lowering my prices!
