Head Study

This painting was produced at Olivier's studio last Friday. The model once again was Daniel, and since it was the same pose, I decided to paint the back of his head rather than his whole body which I had done a couple of weeks ago in pastel.

This is my first painting on a gesso panel prepared with my own hands. Olivier and Julio were kind to share their "secret recipe" and I am glad for it. I found that I had to be a lot more patient because it takes more than one coat to get the color and texture desired, but once you get there it is a breeze!
