30 in 30 Day 6 process

I took a piece of watercolor paper and smeared it with gesso. Once that was dry, I put blobs of paint on and scraped them with a credit card.
To speed things along I took a print out of my model and traced her onto the paper with a carbon.

Then I painted over the tracing with a rigger in black.

Then I justed painted it in.

I was trying to keep the paint somewhat transparent. Next time I will use fluid acrylics and glazing liquid. I do quite like the background texture.
