Live Painting - in the booth at WonderCon


A couple weeks ago, we (Rev Art Academy), had a booth at WonderCon.  I did this painting on the Saturday of the con in the booth.
It was a fun convention, smaller scale than ComicCon.  We met some new people, saw good friends, a lot of cool stuff and awesome cosplay.. and had fun painting.  All around good time.

Lenora - small 4x4" painting

Lenora - mixed media (acrylic, then oil) on board, 4x4"
Posted this very small painting (4x4") - Lenora - on EveryDayOriginal.com. Happy to say that it sold that same morning. There is a lot of build-up of layers of texture in acrylic and thick layers of glazes in between each texture layer. The face/top layer is in oil. It's fun to see in person because the layering creates a neat depth that is otherwise very difficult to photograph.
