Summer is here!! A quick update, I purchased a Andrea bust a few weeks ago, and it's been so blazing hot here that I cannot work on it (my shop is in my garage). So after seeing finished work on the web I started painting. It goes slow because I stop to take pictures of each step (photo studio is in garage too). The piece has lots of character and a real ugly face, but it is sure a lot of fun to paint. Originally I wanted to paint the flesh in acrylics- but I wasn't satisfied with the result, so I did it over in oils. I will use acrylics to paint the hair as it give a better effect.
