what an odd lady this seated nude became
i covered the freshly stretched canvas with a dozen coats of gesso, sanding occasionally, adding other layers. she was drawn on the thick and still slightly wet paint. the pencil carved her outline. more paint. her outline, now in black, gets covered again, but each time now i carve the outline into the paint. this goes on a while.
turns out she is pink. and her body, glazed in fingerprints. multi-layered textured gal. i like her.
