Completed water media portrait using a gesso bath.
In a previous post I referred to a mixed media technique that I learned in my figure painting class. I tried it on two paintings. I killed the first painting I tried it on with too much regular gesso. On this one I like the results for the most part. It is a good way to save a painting that has problems that cannot be fixed with watercolor alone.
I now have about five paintings that I'm willing to commit the money to having them framed. I guess that moves me from totally "process" to a little bit "product."
